AWS改用Lambda网络为VPC客户减少了冷启动时间

 Cache   

AWS宣布改变Lambda函数连接虚拟私有云(Virtual Private Cloud,简称VPC)资源的方式。这个改变,即使用预先创建的网络接口而不是为每个函数执行环境创建的网络接口,为无服务器功能消除了“冷启动”的一个主要因素。

这个改变是不是IOpipe的Austin Huminski所称的“大量使用VPC的企业采用无服务器的转折点”?可以肯定的是,自2016年以来,AWS Lambda用户已经能够连接到运行于VPC中的服务器和服务了。由于AWS Lambda的所有计算基础设施都运行于AWS拥有的VPC中,因此,与客户VPC的连接传统上是通过弹性网络接口实现的。在客户VPC中,为每个执行环境创建了这些弹性网络接口。在这些网络接口被创建和附加之前,无法执行Lambda函数代码。随着功能的扩展,更多执行环境需要甚至更多的网络接口,如来自AWS的下图所示

借助刚发布的AWS Lambda更新,正如AWS的一篇博文所解释的那样,连接架构得到了简化。

从今天开始,我们改变了功能连接到VPC的方式。用于网络负载平衡器和NAT网关的网络函数虚拟化平台AWS Hyperplane,支持AWS PrivateLink等产品的VPC之间的连接,并且,我们现在利用Hypenplane提供从Lambda VPC到客户VPC的NAT功能。


          

Linux 5.4-rc2

 Cache   

Back to the usual Sunday afternoon schedule, and -rc2 is out.

Nothing particularly stands out here. It's roughly one third arch
updates, one third drivers, and one third "misc" (kvm selftests,
networking, filesystems, core kernel, header files etc). No real
theme, just random fixes all over the place.

The diffstat is pretty flat too, which is just another sign of "small
fixes all over".

So nothing looks particularly worrisome, but usually rc2 is fairly
calm and it takes a while for any regressions to be noticed. And this
one was one of the nice small rc2's (5.2 and 5.3 rc2's were both
larger than usual), but maybe it's because it was also a day shorter.

Anyway, nothing for it but to go out and test, people. Go at it!

10 Ways to Make Friends

 Cache   
They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it also takes a village — at best a supportive community, and at the least a few very good friends — to keep a person sane and happy. All of us need companionship, which is exactly why teenagers are texting their friends in the middle of dinner (TMI, BFF, OMG …), and why people who didn’t own a personal computer last year now have profiles on Facebook, MySpace, and other social networking sites.



Maybe the first trick to finding friends is to befriend ourselves, and to become comfortable with silence, because no one has the power to make us feel okay with ourselves but us. But, lest we stay quiet for too long, here are 10 techniques to meet new friends, which I think everyone can benefit from, because, as I learned in Girl Scouts a few hundred years ago (where I didn’t make any friends…), some are silver and the others are old, I mean gold.


1. Join a book club.
Most of my friends are in book clubs, and, I have to admit, I’m a little envious of the discussions that happen in these groups. If your neighborhood doesn’t have a book club, you can usually join one as part of the local library, the recreational or community center, the community college, or online, of course.

2. Volunteer.
That one seems like a no-brainer, but, seriously, have you ever considered the many charities to which you could give your time? Your local civic association is always in need of volunteers for projects like “let’s clean up the park before a hundred dogs crap on it again” and Toys-for-Tots, Christmas in April, and so on. Don’t forget about all your local politicians who need help with their campaigns. If one impresses you, offer to knock on a few doors for her or him. Host a cheese and cracker party for the community to get to know the candidate.

3. Find a support group.
There’s more to the support group universe than AA. Have you ever looked through all the local listings of meetings in your area? There’s even ACOMP (Adult Cousins of Mean People) … not really.



4. Take a night class.
That’s where you can supposedly meet men (or women) if you find yourself single in your late 30s or 40s or 50s. If you take a class in something that you are interested in, you’re very likely to find potential friends with similar hobbies.

5. Get a dog.
I’m not talking about using the dog as a companion (because we know a dog is a man’s best friend). I just mean that dogs are people magnets–and usually nice-people magnets. Here in Annapolis, we have dog cults. If you walk your mutt in certain neighborhoods, you will meet approximately five to ten friends per mile. Double that if you’re walking a Golden Retriever. Triple it if you head to the “dog park,” designed specifically for doggy play, or proper socialization for dogs.

6. Steal friends.
I realize this technique was frowned upon in the fifth grade. You would surely earn a reputation as a friend-stealer if you tried this too many times. But many (NOT ALL) people in their 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. have loosened up a bit. I have found this to be a very efficient method of making friends, because someone has already done your dirty work–the interview process–and weeded out the toxic folks. It’s like Facebook in real life.



7. Knock on doors.
Yep. That’s what I did six years ago when I was stuck home with a fussy baby and going absolutely crazy. I walked around the neighborhood knocking on every porch that held a stroller. “You in there. I know you have kids. You want to be my friend?” I might have been a tad more subtle than that, but not much.

8. Carpool to work.
Hey, it works for elementary school kids. Many 6-year-olds meet their best buddies on the bus because 1) they live in their neighborhood (what could be more convenient?), 2) they are on the same schedule, and 3) they know the same people (“Susie has cooties”).

9. Connect with your alumni association.
I used to be much better at this before kids came along, but even today, I still pay my dues. Alumni associations are gold mines for potential friends. You already have a major experience in common: you can rehash old times as a conversation starter if you need one. Plus many associations sponsor community service events, workshops, or trips abroad that you can take advantage of even if you aren’t looking for friends.


10. Talk to strangers.
I know this goes against what you were taught in elementary school. But, yes, the way to meet friends is to strike up a conversation with absolutely anyone. This means becoming the annoying lady everyone dodges on the plane: “So … what are you reading? … Oh, ‘Left Behind.’ … Have you gotten to the part where everyone except a handful of people burn in hell?… No? … I hope I didn’t ruin it for you.” If you put yourself out there, yes, you will get rejected many times, and that hurts a little (sometimes a lot). But you will also find your best friends. Everyday life is full of potential friendship moments: waiting rooms, church, trains, planes, automobiles, office meetings, support groups, or coffee shops.

Tim Cook takes a dig at Mark Zuckerberg, says no to Apple digital coin

 Cache   
London: Apple CEO Time Cook has said that Apple does not intend to create its own cryptocurrency, saying he is firmly against the idea of companies setting up digital currencies.

Taking a dig at Facebook's attempt to launch a digital currency called Libra next year, Cook told French financial newspaper Les Echos that money must remain in the hands of states.

"I am not comfortable with the idea that a private group creates a competing currency. A private company does not have to seek to gain power in this way," Cook was quoted as saying.

Facebook that tied up with 27 organisations to start the non-profit Libra Association to launch its cryptocurrency next year appears to have hit a roadblock.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Visa, Mastercard and some other financial partners who signed on to support Libra are reconsidering their involvement in the network.

"The financial partners are reluctant to attract regulatory scrutiny following backlash from governments and banks and have declined Facebook's requests to publicly support the project," the report said on Tuesday.

The US lawmakers recently attacked Facebook, calling it "delusional" and "dangerous", directing the social networking giant to clean up its house first before launching a new business model.

According to Cook, money, like defence, must remain in the hands of states.

"It is at the heart of their mission. We elect our representatives to assume government responsibilities. Companies are not elected, they do not have to go for this," he added.

The Apple CEO Tim who is currently in Europe made an appearance at an event at the non-profit organization Osservatorio Permanente in Italy on Thursday.

During his speech, Cook said that while the Internet has brought many positive developments, "fake news is one of the negatives," as reported by 9to5mac.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/11178&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com.

"The Internet has brought so many positive things, but the fake news is one of the negatives. All of us lovers of democracy and freedom must think that separating the false from the true is the basis of freedom. Quality journalism is the foundation of every democracy and an open and free press is essential," Cook emphasized.

"Going Galt": America's Wealth Producers Vs. Wealth Redistributors

 Cache   

Enough. These "Tea Party" protests spanned the sunny Santa Monica pier to the icy streets of Chicago and Cleveland to rain-drenched Atlanta, overflowing the grounds of the St. Louis Gateway Arch, with massive turnouts in Greenville, S.C., and crowds of several hundred each in New York City and Washington, D.C., and all points in between. Like those who demonstrated before them in Seattle, Denver, Mesa, Ariz., and Overland Park, Kan., two weeks ago, the Tea Party participants held homemade signs that said it all: "Your mortgage is not my problem"; "Liberty: All the stimulus we need"; "No taxation without deliberation."

The speed and scope with which they mobilized were due not to nefarious outside conspiracists, but to social networking websites Facebook and Twitter, where a burgeoning network on Twitter called Top Conservatives became the central clearinghouse for information. Planning for a new wave of demonstrations on April 15 has begun at www.taxdayteaparty.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/28372&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com.

Enough. While they take to the streets politically, untold numbers of America's wealth producers are going on strike financially. Dr. Helen Smith, a Tennessee forensic psychologist and political blogger, dubbed the phenomenon "Going Galt" last fall. It's a reference to the famed Ayn Rand novel "Atlas Shrugged," in which protagonist John Galt leads the entrepreneurial class to cease productive activities in order to starve the government of revenue. (Not coincidentally, Rand's novel sales are up and John Galt references punctuated many of the Tea Party demonstrations.) Dr. Smith was inundated with stories like these:

"I have frozen hiring in my firm. ... No investments will be made in taxable accounts -- only 401k/IRAs. I am buying silver and gold instead of CDs or stocks with non-qualified money and savings. I have stopped taking new clients, thus freezing my income. I barter more and more. Spend less. I stopped leveraging assets (don't borrow)."

"I have cut WAY back -- I'm no longer buying retail, driving out of a 10-mile radius, spending money on eating out or putting my money in a savings account. I am using the money to pay off all of our debt. It has made our family closer, more appreciative."

Another blogger wrote: "Last year my family paid nearly $1,000 a month in federal taxes, and we are not by any stretch of the imagination rich. I'm going to make it my business to cut that amount in half, using every legal means possible and reducing my income so there is less to tax."

Enough. Those business owners are not alone. This week, ABC News spotlighted upper-income earners going Galt in response to Obama's proposed tax hikes on families with incomes of $250,000 or more. A Lafayette, La., attorney told the reporter she was cutting back on her business to avoid the tax threshold: "Why kill yourself working if you're going to give it all away to people who aren't working as hard?" Tax hikes have consequences. Incentives matter. Only self-deluded wealth redistributors living in la-la land believe otherwise.

Another business owner, Dr. Sharon Poczatek, explained: "The motivation for a lot of people like me -- dentists, entrepreneurs, lawyers -- is that the more you work the more money you make," said Poczatek. "But if I'm going to be working just to give it back to the government -- it's de-motivating and demoralizing."

The perpetual Borrow-Spend-Panic-Repeat machine in Washington depends on the capitulation of the wealth producers. There's only one monkey wrench that can stop the redistributionist thieves' engine. It's engraved with the word: Enough.

ePrint Report: Short Paper: Towards Characterizing Sybil Attacks in Cryptocurrency Mixers
Mikerah Quintyne-Collins

Sybil attacks are a well-studied problem in peer-to-peer networking systems. However, their relevance to cryptocurrency mixers has received little attention in the literature, with only a few papers in recent times aiming to design mixers that are resistant to Sybil attacks. A lot of the research has been primarily driven by independent cryptocurrency enthusiasts. We attempt to provide a few characterizations of Sybil attacks as they pertain to mixers and provide mitigations based on economics in order to disincentive Sybil attacks against mixers. In doing so, we highlight that the security of mixers need not only be analyzed through the use of cryptographic techniques but also with the use of economic techniques. Moreover, we provide future research directions in determining heuristics for detecting Sybil identities in mixers.

Balancing Act: Cybersecurity in the Connected Classroom eli.zimm#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/47972&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comerman_9856 Fri, 10/04/2019 - 13:13

With K–12 schools leveraging connected technologies to help improve student outcomes and boost classroom collaboration, effective cybersecurity is not optional. It’s essential to meet student expectations and to satisfy state regulations.

This requires a balancing act: How do educators leverage connected technology without putting student data and other critical information at risk?

With National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) in full swing, it’s the perfect time for schools to identify key risks and develop effective security solutions.

The State of STEM Classrooms

Science, technology, engineering and math initiatives are helping students nationwide prepare for STEM-track careers, but they’re also gaining traction as fundamental aspects of the K–12 curriculum.

This creates a potential cybersecurity gap: Greater adoption of connected tools provides enhanced student opportunity but requires increased oversight of how data is stored, managed and utilized.

Consider the work of Aurora Public Schools, which serves more than 60 area schools and was recently recognized as a leader in education by nonprofit group Colorado Succeeds. According to Kevin Riebau, Director of Learning Resources for APS, the school district is leveraging several connected classroom initiatives to empower student outcomes and launch IT deployments, including:

  • Google Classroom Tools: For Riebau, cloud-based solutions “help manage the day-to-day sharing of resources” among students and staff, creating “feedback loops” that let students develop their own digital footprints. 

    The challenge? Ensuring cloud services provide a secure environment for data storage and comply with current legislation.
     

  • AR and VR Experiences: APS is now deploying both augmented reality and virtual reality experiences for K–12 students, including “expeditions” for elementary and middle school students and VR-based postsecondary tours for high school students. As noted by Riebau, “It’s not always practical to conduct college tours physically,” and VR lets schools bridge the gap. K–12 schools are also diversifying their device footprints, using everything from school-issued laptops to interactive touch panels. Here, accessibility matters. Who has access to this technology? For what purpose? How is use tracked, cataloged and stored for potential cybersecurity audits?
     
  • The APS Digital Badge Program: The APS Digital Badge Program uses microcredentials to describe student success across five key areas: collaboration, critical thinking, information literacy, invention and self-direction. Riebau describes the program “as a way to recognize student assets and open doors of opportunity.” Once in high school, students can choose to move their badges from internal networks to public-facing social sites such as LinkedIn. But making this shift from private to public networking introduces risk. Both students and teachers need training on how to effectively handle credentials in-house and ensure the move to public networks doesn’t compromise local data storage.

Cisco , la nota azienda e leader nel settore di networking ed IT, in occasione del Visual Networking Index , afferma che il 2022 sarà l'anno di punta per traffico di IP globale , superando addirittura tutto il traffico prodotto negli anni precedenti , cioè dalla nascita della rete fino ad oggi. Internet come ben sappiamo è costituita da reti pubbliche e private distribuite in tutto il mondo ed ha trasportato fino ad oggi più di 4,7 Zettabyte di traffico IP, in paragone sarebbe , lo stesso traffico che produrrebbe il trasferimento attraverso la rete in meno di un minuto di tutti i film mai realizzati. Secondo le previsioni dell'azienda , il traffico IP globale , aumenterà dagli attuali 122 Exabyte al mese fino ad arrivare a 396 Exabyte al mese nel giro di 5 anni, in pratica si parla di quasi 5 Zettabyte all'anno.

Caroline B. Glick: American Jewry’s days of reckoning
On September 29, President Donald Trump set out his nationalist political philosophy in his address before the UN General Assembly. Arguing that the nation-state is the best guarantor of human freedom and liberty, Trump set up a contrast between “patriots” and “globalists.”

“The future does not belong to globalists,” he said.

“The future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.”

Jewish nationalists, that is, Zionists, could hear their core convictions echoed in Trump’s statement. Israeli political philosopher Yoram Hazony made much the same argument in his book "The Virtue of Nationalism," which was published last year.

One of the regimes most opposed to nationalism is the Iranian regime. Iran’s leaders view the regime not as the government of the nation of Iran, but as the leader of a global jihad, which will end with the regime’s domination of the world, in the name of Islam – not Iran.

Anti-Semitism is one of the animating doctrines of Iran’s regime. The leaders ascribe to genocidal Jew-hatred. They use their commitment to annihilating Israel and war against the Jewish state as a means to build legitimacy for their regime and revolution throughout the Islamic world.

In his speech, Trump highlighted the regime’s anti-Semitism and its commitment to annihilate Israel.

Trump also excoriated the Arab world for refusing to recognize Israel’s right to exist, saying, “Fanatics have long used hatred of Israel to distract from their own failures.”

Trump pledged, “America will never tolerate such anti-Semitic hate.”

Rather than earning him plaudits, American Jews were caustic in their response to Trump’s speech. Britain’s Independent reported that several American Jews condemned Trump’s speech as anti-Semitic. For instance, Laura Seay, a political science professor in Texas tweeted, “So … Trump condemns anti-Semitism in the same speech he started with anti-Semitic code language like 'globalism.'"
Ruthie Blum: Owing Israel an apology
FINALLY, I APOLOGIZE if I have given anyone the impression that I would be bitter about whatever coalition is cobbled together, or would not accept a third round of Knesset elections, if that becomes necessary. My view – that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a great leader – has not changed; nor has my sense that the charges against him are flimsy, at best, been shaken.

In addition, I am less than thrilled about the prospect of a national-unity government, headed either by Netanyahu or by Blue and White leader Benny Gantz, whether or not they reach a rotation agreement. Nor do I welcome new elections, which probably would result in an outcome nearly identical to that of the September 17 vote.

But as soon as a government is formed, including if its makeup is one I consider disappointing, I pledge to continue to use my pen to defend the country against its external enemies, such as Iran – whose regime boasts about possessing the will and means to wipe Israel off the map – and those at home and abroad who engage in equally serious efforts to delegitimize the Jewish state in order to call its existence into question.

I hope to keep the above promises in the year to come, and to live up to a different admonition by Isaiah – verse 5:20 – which is not recited on Yom Kippur, but should be remembered and applied by all of us every single day of each calendar year: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that change darkness into light, and light into darkness.”
Battling BDS, one laugh at a time
I LIKE the idea that it’s time to stand up for ourselves through stand-up, among other means. Better to deliver punchlines than be the punching bags. It’s healthy to be able to laugh at ourselves and it beats BDS bitterness. Two days after last month’s election, the Government Press Office and Foreign Ministry arranged for a special screening of a new movie called Mossad. The comedy was presented as the perfect break from politics and a good way to help Israel’s image.

The satire directed by Alon Gur Arye has a star-studded cast, including heartthrob Tsahi Halevi of Fauda fame in his first comic role. Halevi plays a bumbling spy called Guy Moran (and you can imagine how that surname turns out in English.)

When he gives a woman his card, she says: “But it’s blank.”

“That’s because I’m a secret agent,” he replies.

The save-the-world plot in which the Mossad and the CIA compete and collaborate is totally implausible, but many of the one-liners are brilliant and the slapstick stunts are well-executed. When the evil masterminds capture an American billionaire in Jerusalem, they come up against a henpecked Mossad chief whose sole aim is to finish his term without incident and to get to light one of the torches on Independence Day. The (obviously unreal) Mossad head, played by Ilan Dar, demands a videotape of the hostages holding a newspaper showing the date. This leads RBG (the “Real Bad Guys”) to scream: “Who can even find videotape anymore? Nobody reads a newspaper!”

Unlike Diplomatic Relations, where the idea is good, but the performance is at times painful, I can happily recommend Mossad. Gur Arye admits that the film was inspired by gag-filled American movies such as Top Secret! and that making it was a dream come true. Noting that most of his Israeli peers want to make dramas, he preferred parody.

“And I wanted to spoof something very Israeli,” he explained in a panel after the screening.

Gur Arye was lucky and talented enough to get veteran Israeli director Avi Nesher and American director David Zucker (of the Airplane and the Naked Gun franchise) on board and the film definitely has Zucker’s wacky touch.



Bari Weiss Makes Her Case
Does she focus too much on left-wing anti-Semitism given the danger from the right? In a way, Weiss replied, left-wing anti-Semitism is more insidious because it “speaks a language that is a siren song — the language of social justice, progress, defense of the oppressed.” It’s also far more socially acceptable: “Someone who photoshops your face into a gas chamber is not going to be received in polite society. Someone who calls you an Islamophobe and a racist for being a Zionist is going to be invited on television.”

She addressed difficult questions with both nuance and simplicity. Yes, “Netanyahu makes it harder to defend Israel” with his Arab-baiting, his alliances with racist parties and his cozying up to authoritarians in Europe. No, it’s not acceptable to blame him for anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, because “Jews should not be blamed for anti-Semitism, ever.”

I didn’t agree with everything Weiss said. I wasn’t, for instance, too impressed by her suggestion that Jews who support BDS are motivated by the desire to “belong” and fit in with surrounding society; it seemed needlessly dismissive of some people’s sincere beliefs.

I also had mixed feelings about the claim she made at the end of the evening, and which she also makes in the book: That anti-Semitism exists largely as a backlash against the “radical ideas” at the center of Jewish faith and culture. “The idea of one God, that slavery is wrong — those are Jewish ideas,” Weiss said. Obviously, the Jews’ role as the original monotheists had something to do with their historical contentious relationship with other cultures. But Weiss also oversimplifies this history and flirts with reinventing Judaism in the image of modern humanism. (Both the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud accept slavery as a given, though they also call for humane treatment of slaves.)

At the same time, Weiss had a strong point when she noted the remarkable fact that the Jewish people’s “original story is freedom of slavery” — and that Jews “often stand perpendicular to their societies,” demanding “the right to be different.” As she put it, “That drove people nuts and it still drives people nuts.”

Come to think of it, that’s not a bad description of Weiss herself. A liberal by any rational standard, she stands perpendicular to most of her social milieu, demanding the right to differ from its groupthink. And it certainly seems to drive people nuts. (h/t Dave4321)
Deborah E. Lipstadt: The Gray Lady and the Jewish State
In late April 2019, the New York Times international editionpublished a cartoon depicting a blind, kippa-wearing President Trump being led by a dachshund with a Jewish star around its neck. The dog’s face was a distorted caricature of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visage. The message was indisputable: Israelis qua Jews, despite being the national equivalent of lapdogs, have the unique ability to blind presidents and shape political events. Beguiled, not only does Trump do their bidding, but he is, like the other unwitting victims on the world stage, blissfully unaware of what is going on. The cartoon gave vivid expression to the conspiracy theory, or rather myth, that is at the heart of anti-Semitism and did so in an image that, as was widely noted, could have appeared in Der Stürmer. How did it end up receiving the New York Times’s imprimatur?

Apparently, a single midlevel editor for the international edition of the paper chose the cartoon from a syndication service to which the paper then subscribed. Subsequent events followed a familiar pattern. The paper, after being inundated with outraged comments, including some from its own staff members, issued a short apology in the form of an editor’s note: “The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it.” Eileen Murphy, a New York Times spokeswoman, added a subsequent statement on behalf of the Opinion section of the paper, identifying the cartoon as anti-Semitic and saying it was “deeply sorry” for publishing it.

In most cases, that would have been the end of the story, except for the scores of Jewish readers and supporters of Israel who were once again forced to decide whether to cancel their subscriptions. Two subsequent events made this incident noteworthy. Writing in the New York Times, op-ed columnist Bret Stephens scathingly lambasted not only the international edition but his own paper. For Stephens, the publication of a “textbook illustration” of anti-Semitism did not reveal institutional anti-Semitism, but it wasn’t much better than that. It was that the Times, “otherwise hyper-alert to nearly every conceivable expression of prejudice,” could be so, well, blind:
Imagine, for instance, if the dog on a leash in the image hadn’t been the Israeli prime minister but instead a prominent woman such as Nancy Pelosi, a person of color such as John Lewis, or a Muslim such as Ilhan Omar. Would that have gone unnoticed by either the wire service that provides the Times with images or the editor who, even if he were working in haste, selected it? The question answers itself. And it raises a follow-on: How have even the most blatant expressions of anti-Semitism become almost undetectable to editors who think it’s part of their job to stand up to bigotry?

The answer, Stephens wrote, was that anti-Zionism has become so mainstream “that people have been desensitized to its inherent bigotry,” and the Times was complicit in that mainstreaming.
David Collier: St Anne’s Church in Soho, Miko Peled and an evening with antisemites
Peled in the Church

But this is Peled’s night. Peled is not a man of peace. He is a man clearly wired to seek revenge for whatever injustice his own mind has created for him. He is also someone who buckles when his weak arguments are exposed. I always put Peled’s leaving of the fold down to his inability to handle the weight of his family heritage, but it doesn’t really matter anymore what drove him over the cliff. What is certain is that he drove off it.

Peled likes provoking Jews. Those who think his ‘Holocaust, yes or no‘ comment from the Labour Party conference of 2017 is a stand-alone remark haven’t been paying attention. At UCL the same year he spoke about ‘the witch-hunt against antisemites and Holocaust deniers.’ going on to suggest to Jeremy Corbyn that he should put away the ‘nonsense about Holocaust denial and the nonsense about antisemitism‘. If you follow his threads on Twitter and Facebook you soon realise his audience is little more than an extremist, racist mob.

So Peled stands in the Church and beats his chest about how the Labour Party Conference was little more than a ‘rally for Palestine’. He isn’t wrong. With the NHS, austerity and housing as major concerns for their voters, the Labour Party did little but obsess over Israel.

Peled spoke as he normally does – blaming everything on Zionists and Israeli discrimination. Context and humanity and reason are removed. Lies are created. The end result is raw demonisation. Then look at the laugh his jokes about antisemitism gets from the crowd in the Church.

There is nothing funny about any of this. With Antisemitism visibly on the rise across the globe, the Church provides a platform to someone who ridicules racism against Jews. Peled is feeding antisemitism. He is demonising Zionism and Israel to an audience containing many who already buy into anti-Jewish conspiracy.
PMW: Does The World Karate Federation authorize tournaments named after Palestinian terrorists?
The Palestinian Karate Federation has misused the sport of karate to promote terrorist Dalal Mughrabi who led the murder of 37 Israeli civilians, among them 12 children, as a role model for young Palestinian women:
"The Sisters of Dalal Mughrabi Championship for Young Women" [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 13, 2019]

A banner displayed at the championship carried the name of the "Palestinian Karate Federation" and its logo (left), and the logo of the "World Karate Federation" (right):

[Official Facebook page of the Palestinian Karate Federation, Sept. 11, 2019]
"Palestine" is a member of the Asian Karate Federation, which is a member of the World Karate Federation. Two weeks ago, Palestinian Media Watch passed on the documentation of this Palestinian championship honoring a mass murderer to both federations, asking that they condemn the Palestinian Karate Federation and prohibit the recurrence of terror glorification by the Palestinian Karate Federation and any other of its federation members. In addition, PMW asked that if the federation's "Statutes and Rules" currently do not prohibit naming sporting events after terrorists, that the statutes be amended immediately to include such a prohibition. However, neither federation has responded.

The championship in which 55 young Palestinian female athletes participated was held in Bethlehem by the southern branch of the Palestinian Karate Federation.

Dalal Mughrabi, after whom this tournament was named, was a female Palestinian terrorist who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus and murdered 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded over 70. PMW has documented numerous examples of PA and Fatah leaders promoting murderer Mughrabi as a hero for Palestinian society in general and for youth in particular. The PA has named at least 6 schools after murderer Mughrabi, many sporting events have been named after her, and a PA schoolbook teaches children to "be like" her.
UK to Release ’Pay to Slay’ Audits After Freedom of Information Request
The branch of the British government responsible for administering overseas aid will disclose audit reports regarding aid money allegedly used to pay salaries to convicted terrorists, after abandoning its appeal against a ruling by UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham.

In July 2018, UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI), a British volunteer organization of lawyers who support Israel, submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department for International Development for copies of audit reports for the Palestinian Recovery and Development Program. The program is a World Bank multi-donor trust fund for the Palestinian Authority. The DFID refused to release the information, citing among other reasons the risk of potential harm diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and the PA.

According to UKLFI, “Various countries, including the UK, paid large sums of money into the World Bank’s Palestinian Recovery and Development Program Multi Donor Trust Fund (PRDP-MDTF), which were then transferred to the Palestinian Authority’s Central Treasury Account.” According to the organization, “this is the account from which payments were made to convicted terrorists, rewarding them for their crimes.”

Commissioner Denham ruled on July 26 of this year that the reports were of “significant public interest,” which outweighed any potential harm that might be done to diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and the PA Denham ordered the DFID to release the information within 35 days, or appeal.
Observing Labour antisemites in Brighton
For the efficient observer of anti-Israel hate mongering in Great Britain the seaside resort of Brighton in the UK was the place to be during the fourth week of September. There the Labour party's annual conference took place. This gathering also claimed 450 fringe events.

Attendance was around 13 000 people. In a few days one could receive a concentrated overview of anti-Israelism in Labour as well as smatterings of antisemitism, its minimizing and whitewashing.

A few examples illustrate this.

At the conference the great majority of delegates voted for a motion to boycott Israeli "settlement" goods. This was a first for Labour. The delegates also voted to reject trade agreements with the country. It seemed that the party furthermore backed the “right of return” of Palestinian Arabs. This is tantamount to supporting Israel’s annihilation through swamping it with Palestinian Arabs. The common way to interpret this right is that those who fled can return. In the Palestinian case it is distorted by Israel’s enemies meaning that descendants of refugees from any generation are also entitled to immigrate to Israel where they have never lived.

Palestinian flags and chants of “Free Palestine” were prominent at the Labour conference. This, despite rules prohibiting flags from being displayed on the conference floor. Last year, hundreds of Palestinian flags were also flown with the approval of the Labour leadership after these were handed out to delegates.
EHRC summons 25 former and current Labour staffers to give evidence in antisemitism inquiry in “daunting” letters
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has written to 25 former and current employees of the Labour Party requiring them to provide evidence as part of its inquiry into antisemitism in the Labour Party.

The inquiry, which is a full statutory investigation, was launched by the EHRC on 28th May following a formal referral and detailed legal representations from Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is the complainant.

The letters reportedly advise that “the Commission is gathering evidence to investigate this matter in accordance with the terms of reference and has identified you as a person we require evidence from. Please do not ignore this letter or the Notice. We draw your attention to the consequences of failing to comply with the Notice which…may include committing a criminal offence.” The letter requires a response within fourteen days.

The EHRC has the authority to require any individual or organisation to disclose relevant information, and the notices have reportedly been described as “daunting” by some recipients.

Over 70 Labour whistleblowers have given evidence to the EHRC in relation to the antisemitism investigation.
University and College Union which rejected antisemitism definition apologises for excluding Jews from its extensive list of Nazi victims
Extraordinarily, the e-mail did not mention Jewish victims of the Nazis, who were the principal victims of the Holocaust. This was even despite the specific reference to non-Jewish Poles.

UCU indirectly apologised for the offensive omission in an e-mail from an “equality support official” for what were described as “drafting errors” and “human error”. The official stated that “UCU apologises for the offence this caused and reassures all members that it continues to fight against all forms of antisemitism, hatred and bigotry in society.” In the updated e-mail, a paragraph was added about the genocide of Jews in the Holocaust.

Ordinarily, such an omission might not have been noteworthy, but UCU has a poor record when it comes to fighting antisemitism, including refusing to adopt the International Definition of Antisemitism, repeatedly endorsing the antisemitism-riddled Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against the Jewish State and fighting a legal battle against a Jewish academic who unsuccessfully sued UCU for breach of the Equality Act 2010.

It is hardly a stretch to imagine that there is a relationship between UCU’s cavalier approach to antisemitism today and its insensitivity toward commemoration of historic antisemitism. If the Union were to show greater awareness of the antisemitism of the past, perhaps its attitude toward Jews today will also find the correction it so desperately needs.
British Teenager Goes Public About Months of Antisemitic Abuse
A British teenager has gone public about a torrent of antisemitic invective she has faced in recent months, including taunts about the Holocaust.

Charlotte Nathan, 17, who attends school in Northwich, England, was moved to speak about her experiences after she received a derogatory message on her Snapchat account that said, “I wanna fart in your face to remind you of how your grandparents died.”

The Manchester-based Jewish Telegraph quoted her as saying, “Casual racism is a common feature of daily life, especially among the millennial generation, who perceive racism as a form of humor and so-called ‘banter.’”

“Catalysts, such as memes used on social media, seem to justify and sugarcoat the underlying racial tensions that as a society we fail to address,” she stated. “This can be exemplified through the lack of education supplied about different cultural groups to schools and other communities, exacerbating ignorance.”

“I am no stranger to antisemitic abuse,” she added, “and for the last six years, being in secular education and interacting with other cultures, I have encountered a fair share of comments and remarks.”

“This is evidence of inherited, underlying racism we see daily,” she said.






Revisiting a BBC Radio 4 Christmas report from the Gaza Strip
As was noted here at the time, Husain was conspicuously silent on the topic of how many Christians actually currently live in the Gaza Strip and her report was obviously intended to promote the politically motivated narrative that Gaza’s Christian population lives happily under Hamas rule, with its only tribulations caused by Israel.

Last week Israel’s Channel 12 aired an interview (in Hebrew and Arabic) by Arab affairs correspondent Ohad Hemo with a Christian who escaped the Gaza Strip four months ago.

“Since Hamas came to power in the Gaza Strip the Christians living there have become scapegoats and the targets of that organisation as well as Salafist extremists. Due to their difficult situation most have fled and from a community of 4,200 people, now only a few hundred remain. Kamal Tarazi was there until recently. Four months ago he managed to escape: “Hamas people took over my home and turned it into a command post”, he recounts. […]

‘They put me in a number of prisons and Hamas’ prison is all just beatings and psychological torture’ he recalls. According to him the harming of the Christians in Gaza has become routine and does not stop even during times of conflict. […]

‘They harass and harm the Christian public and Christian institutions, churches and charities’.”


The calibre of Mishal Husain’s reporting on the topic of challenges faced by the Christian community in the Gaza Strip is again all too apparent.


Ha'aretz: The Fake Nazi Death Camp: Wikipedia’s Longest Hoax, Exposed
“The first gassing there took place on October 17, 1943, killing at least 150 Poles caught in a street roundup and about 20 Belgian Jews …. Bodies were either cremated in crematoriums or open-air pyres (including at a former sports stadium) or simply buried under collapsed buildings during the systematic demolition of the former ghetto .... [Some estimates] place the number of the camp’s victims well above 212,000, mainly Poles and several thousand of non-Polish.”

This dry description of the systematic murder of ethnic Poles by Nazi forces during World War II was taken from the English-language Wikipedia article for the “Warsaw concentration camp,” also known as Konzentrationslager Warschau. The site where the camp stood is an object of pilgrimage for some in Poland, who hold periodic ceremonies on what they believe is hallowed ground. They come to honor the memory of thousands of Poles murdered in a gas chamber located near the Warsaw West (Warszawa Zachodnia) train station – which still exists – and have even erected monuments and plaques in their memory.

There’s just one problem: No such death camp ever existed. There is no historical evidence of German gas chambers ever existing in Warsaw, and nowhere near 200,000 people died in the cluster of Nazi internment centers that did stand at the basis of the myth of KL Warschau.

“It’s fake history,” says Prof. Havi Dreifuss, a Tel Aviv University historian and Yad Vashem’s expert on Poland and the Holocaust, when asked about gas chambers in Warsaw. Other Holocaust historians share her unequivocal position: “It’s a conspiracy theory,” says Prof. Jan Grabowski, a Polish-Canadian historian from the University of Ottawa, when asked about the legend behind the death toll. Yet both claims appeared, almost without interruption, for 15 years on the English-language version of Wikipedia in what is said to be Wikipedia’s longest-standing hoax.

European Court: Holocaust Denial Is Not a Human Right
Denying that the Holocaust ever happened isn’t a form of freedom of expression protected under the European Human Rights Convention, a top court has ruled in a case that stretches back nearly a decade.

Udo Pastoers, a German who suggested in a 2010 speech that the Holocaust never occurred, was fairly convicted under the country’s laws against the intentional defamation of Jewish people, the European Court of Human Rights ruled while rejecting his complaints.

Pastoers’ argument that his statements were protected by Article 10, which protects freedom of expression, was “manifestly ill-founded,” given that he “had intentionally stated untruths in order to defame the Jews and the persecution that they had suffered,” the Strasbourg, France-based court ruled on Thursday. His complaint that he was denied a fair trial in Germany was also rejected by the ECHR.

Pastoers had given a speech a day after Holocaust Remembrance Day in 2010, saying that the “the so-called Holocaust is being used for political and commercial purposes” and also referring to a “barrage of criticism and propagandistic lies” and “Auschwitz projections.” He was first convicted in 2012 by a German district court, and then a regional court rejected his appeal of the verdict less than a year later.
Swastika, anti-Semitic slur painted on wall of former Krakow Ghetto
A swastika and other graffiti were painted on the wall of the former ghetto in Krakow.

“Whores Jews, get the f*** out of Poland” alongside the swastika were discovered drawn with a tar-like substance on Tuesday — the second day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Municipal services painted over the graffiti on the same day.

Police investigated in the area of Limanowskiego Street; there are no suspects.

“While I was extremely upset to see the hateful graffiti on the ghetto wall, especially on Rosh Hashanah, the quick reaction by the city and the police reminded me why Krakow is such a good place to be a Jew,” said Jonathan Ornstein, director of the Jewish Community Center of Krakow.

On Sunday, graffiti reading “Confederation against Jews #447” was discovered on the wall of the Jewish cemetery in Tarnow.

In 2018, the US Congress approved Law 447, or the Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today, or JUST act, which insures that those who survived World War II or their heirs receive compensation for their losses, if it has not already happened. The Confederation is a right-wing political group that opposes the restitution of Jewish property.
India issues terror alert for Jewish, Israeli targets on Yom Kippur
Authorities in India have warned of a potential terror attack on Jewish or Israeli targets on Yom Kippur, which begins Tuesday night.

According a Channel 12 news report on Friday, Israeli security services are working with their Indian counterparts to thwart any potential attack over the Jewish holiday period, which runs until October 21.

The Israeli embassy in New Delhi, synagogues, Chabad buildings, Jewish schools, restaurants and hotels known as popular destinations among Israeli travelers have all been put on high alert with increased security.

The Times of India reported last month that there were fears an attack could be carried out on a Jewish target by a cell affiliated with either the Al-Qaeda or Islamic State terrorist groups.

The report said the alert was issued on the basis of intelligence received from the security agencies of other countries. No further details were given.

In 2008, there were coordinated attacks on Mumbai’s luxury hotels, the main railway station, a restaurant popular with tourists and the city’s Chabad center. The Lashkar-e-Taiba group was blamed for the attacks that killed 166 people in total, including six Israelis.
3 out of every 4 LA county Jews view antisemitism as serious - poll
Three-quarters of Jewish people in Los Angeles County view antisemitism as a serious threat, a new survey found.

“The Pat Brown Institute (PBI) for Public Affairs at California State University, Los Angeles conducted a poll of more than 1,800 Jewish voters in Los Angeles county [and it] revealed strong support for the survival of Israel as a Jewish state and also very significant fears of growing antisemitism,” said Dr. Raphael Sonenshein, executive director of PBI.

“More than 70% reported being concerned about it,” he said. “Written comments to an open-ended question revealed concerns from both the Right and the Left on antisemitism. Clearly though, fears of growing antisemitism are widespread.”

According to the findings, 41% of the participants said that antisemitism is an extremely serious problem, and 31% said they consider it “very serious.”

Vandals smash windows of Brooklyn synagogue during Rosh Hashanah prayers
The windows of a synagogue in Brooklyn were smashed by vandals this week during Rosh Hashanah services.

A video showing people throwing milk crates at the Rivnitz synagogue in the Williamsburg neighborhood was circulated Wednesday on social media.

Police said that the incident took place on Monday afternoon and they were searching for two females who were seen in the video, according to WPIX-TV.

Mayor Bill de Blasio condemned the vandalism.

“This is a shocking act of hate,” he wrote on Twitter. “We WILL find the perpetrators and hold them responsible.”

The Anti-Defamation League said it was “deeply disturbed” by the video.

“At a time when the Brooklyn Jewish community is already on edge in the wake of a series of anti-Semitic incidents, it is extremely upsetting to see this congregation targeted during what is otherwise supposed to be a joyous celebration of the Jewish New Year,” Evan Bernstein, the regional director of the organization’s New York-New Jersey office, said in a statement.


Teen allegedly attacked Jewish woman in Brooklyn, pulling off scarf, wig
Police said a Jewish woman reported being harassed in Brooklyn on Rosh Hashanah.

The 22-year-old said that she was approached on Sunday evening by a female teenager who “pulled her scarf and wig from her head,” a New York Police detective, Annette Shelton, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in an email.

The incident occurred in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood and the perpetrator, who was described as being 16 years old, was accompanied by another teenager, the woman told police.

Shelton said that the police’s Hate Crimes Task Force was investigating the incident.

The incident is the second alleged attack that occurred on Rosh Hashanah in the borough. On Monday, the windows of a synagogue were broken in the Williamsburg neighborhood.

That incident drew condemnations from Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

There has been a spate of attacks in recent months against visibly Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn.
Arabic-speaking man tosses rock at Israeli’s head in Germany
A 27 -year-old Israeli woman was the victim of a violent antisemitic attack in Bavaria after an Arabic-speaking man tossed a rock at her after she spoke Hebrew.

She suffered a head injury, according to the Bavarian daily Merkur, which reported on Thursday that the police are searching for the suspect who fled the scene of the alleged crime.

That attack took place on Wednesday near a cemetery in the town of Massing. The Israeli woman was walking with her two sons near the cemetery. After the woman called for one of her sons in Hebrew, the man screamed in Arabic “Jew” and tossed a stone at her head.

The Merkur reported that the suspect is between 40 and 50 years-old and has short, black hair. He spoke broken German with a foreign accent.
Israeli startups raise more than $1 billion in September
Israeli startups raised $5.9 billion so far in 2019 and are on track to pass last year’s record-breaking figure of $6.4 billion, the Israeli business daily Globes reported on Wednesday.

Based on press releases from Israeli companies that have completed financing rounds, more than $1 billion was raised in September alone.

However, the true figure is likely even higher, as some companies do not reveal investment data, according to the report.

Israeli tech companies raised $650 million in July and $350 million in August, according to the IVC Research Center.

In September, credit company Fundbox raised $326 million, fintech firm Tipalti raised $76 million and open security platform Snyk raised $70 million. In addition, drone defense company D-Fend raised $28 million, and 3D-printing company Xjet raised $45 million.
Early clinical trial for ALS sufferers shows biotech firm ‘on the right track’
Kadimastem Ltd., a biotechnology firm that develops cell therapies, said it has received “promising interim results” from a first group of patients treated with its new therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a fatal neurodegenerative condition that causes the loss of muscle control.

“Looks like we are on the right track,” said Rami Epstein, the CEO of Kadimastem, in a phone interview. “The interim results are important because they demonstrate that we have managed to inject the live cells into a human body without any treatment-related significant adverse effect, while also showing a measurable therapeutic effect. Our cell therapy managed to significantly slow down the disease progression and halt deterioration of the disease.”

The cell therapy aims to slow or even halt the progression of the disease and improve patients’ quality of life and life expectancy, he said.

ALS leads to muscle weakness, loss of motor function, paralysis, breathing problems, and eventually death. The average life expectancy of ALS patients is two to five years. According to the ALS Therapy Development Institute, there are approximately 450,000 ALS patients worldwide, 30,000 of them in the US. According to the ALS Foundation for Life, the annual average healthcare costs of an ALS patient in the US are estimated at US$ 200,000. Thus, the annual healthcare costs of ALS patients in the US alone amount to $6 billion.

In a filing to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange last week, the firm said that the treatment administered to one group of patients in a Phase 1/2a clinical trial held in Israel apparently caused a significant slowdown in the progress of the disease and was found to be safe.
Israel Mounts See-Through-Wall Radar on Robots
Israel’s Camero is positioning its Xaver see-though-wall technology for networked use by unmanned systems, according to company officials.

Ilan Abramovich, Camero (and sister company Meprolight) senior vice-president of sales and marketing for defence, said the company’s Xavernet, a wireless Toughbook-based networking capability, enables the handheld sense-through-wall radars to be operated from 100–200 m line-of-sight.

The concept places the radars on robotic or unmanned platforms for remote control. Currently, four radars can be controlled at once, Abramovich said. It works with the Xaver 100 and Xaver 400 systems, he added.

The Xaver 100 hand-held radar was designed for teams breaching a room or a door, to give them a ‘go or no-go’ decision by simply showing if a person was behind the wall by displaying an arrow that indicates if the person is moving towards or away from the wall.

All the Xaver series systems are radar-based, and use ultra wide-band radio signals between 3 –10 GHz. They have a 120° field of view (FOV) and can see through drywall, concrete, and various structures, though not solid metal. Metal drywall studs or concrete reinforced with rebar can block the signal as well, but can still make the system function if a non-metal through-spot can be found, Abramovich said.
Israel Shipyards Sells Patrol Craft Worldwide
Israel Shipyards has received orders for its newest patrol craft, the OPV 45, and is in discussions towards the first sale of a Sa'ar S-72 vessel, according to Noam Katsav, managing director at Israel Shipyards.

The Sa'ar S-72 is 71.8 m long, has a 3,200 n mile range, an 800 tonne displacement, and a 30 kt top speed. Contract talks are ongoing with one country, and one Sa'ar S-72 has begun construction in the meantime, Katsav said.

In September Israel Shipyards has sold two OPV 45s, which are 45.7 m long, have a 3,000 n mile range, a 290 tonne displacement, and a 24 kt top speed. The yard will start building those soon, he added. The OPV 45 is driven by fixed-pitch propellers and the power plants depend on the customer's needs. It can mount stabilised naval gun systems of up to 30 mm in the primary position, and 12.7 mm machine guns.

Meanwhile, the yard is building more of its Shaldag fast patrol craft. Shaldag variants - Mk II, III, IV, and V - are broken down by size to meet user-specific needs. The Israeli Navy, for example, typically wants small and fast vessels that can be operated by younger sailors.
Army inducts Israeli 'tank killers’ till DRDO develops indigenous ones
Indian infantry soldiers now finally have a new weapon to destroy advancing enemy tanks on the western front with Pakistan. The Army has begun to induct a limited number of Israeli Spike anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) to meet immediate operational requirements till the indigenous man-portable “tank killers” being developed by DRDO are ready for induction.

Sources on Thursday said the “first lot” of the 210 Spike missiles, with a dozen launchers, “arrived in India about 10 days ago” as part of the “Army vice chief’s emergency procurement powers” exercised by the force amidst the ongoing heightened tensions with Pakistan.

The Army moved to buy the initial amount of the fire-and-forget Spike ATGMs, which have a strike range of up to 4-km, for around Rs 280 crore after the Jaish-e-Muhammed training facility at Balakot in Pakistan was bombed by Indian Mirage-2000 fighters on February 26.

“The order will be repeated if the man-portable ATGM being developed by DRDO is not ready by next year. We don’t want to be slowed down any longer in plugging our critical operational deficiencies by DRDO,” said an Army source.
Cyprus Stocking Up on Israeli Drones
Cyprus’ National Guard is said to have received its first four unmanned drones from Israel, allowing Cypriot agencies to obtain clear views from high above over land and water.

The drones, Aerostar Tactical UAS (TUAS) made in Israel, are described as accurate, programmable, and one of the most efficient and cost-effective systems of its class. The specific make has logged over 250,000 operational flight hours with missions flown worldwide.

According to Kathimerini Cyprus, four Unmanned Aerial Vehicles have been delivered to Cyprus National Guard by Aeronautics, an Israeli company, extending the Cypriot range of capabilities for a number of agencies with high definition cameras that can get images from very high flying altitudes.

The purchase of the four UAV’s came at a total cost of 12 million euros the report said, adding that the use of the drones would include monitoring Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Additional uses would include patrolling forest areas in the summer to detect fires as well as assisting in rescue missions within the Nicosia Flight Information Region.
Paul McCartney to Get Back to the Yarkon, sources say
It might seem like only “Yesterday” that Paul McCartney performed in Israel, but maybe you’ll be amazed to learn that it was 11 years ago and Maariv is reporting that it’s “highly likely” that the beloved pop star and former Beatle will get back to Park HaYarkon (or possibly a different venue) for another concert.

Citing information from “close associates,” the publication said that McCartney was “in talks” with officials and promoters and the chance for another Tel Aviv show by the man once dubbed “the cute Beatle” is “extremely high.” Apparently, these sources think that they can work it out or in other words, McCartney will soon be showing us again that he loves Israel, yeah yeah yeah.

McCartney, who is currently married to the Jewish transportation mogul Nancy Shevell (rhymes with “Michelle”) - and whose first wife, the late photographer and animal-rights activist Linda Eastman, was Jewish - was able to master a few words of Hebrew in his 2008 performance, including, “Shana Tova” (Happy New Year) and “Ahava” (love) in addition to the obligatory “Shalom.” He ended that concert with the word, "Nitra'eh" -- "We'll see each other again."

If he needs more inspiration this time around, he might want to check out a Yiddish version of “A Hard Day’s Night” by Gerry Tenney which will surely inspire him to throw in a few Yiddishisms once he arrives here by jet, even if he doesn’t fly in from Miami Beach BOAC.

No word on whether Shevell will accompany him, which might prompt him to croon some silly love songs to his wife of nearly eight years. There’s also no word on whether his daughter, the acclaimed fashion designer Stella McCartney, will be leaving home to attend the show.
Kevin Spacey shows up in Israel, wearing a kippah
Kevin Spacey was spotted in an Israeli restaurant in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, catching the locals by surprise.

The former "House of Cards" star, who has recently faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, arrived in Israel to visit a friend who was sitting shiva (the traditional seven-day mourning period following the death of a family member) in Jerusalem.
Kevin Spacey at a restaurant in Tel Aviv

The actor was seen wearing a kippah during his shiva visit, but later took the kippah off when he dined at the Tel Aviv restaurant Coco BamBino.

Spacey is just one of a number of celebrities who have visited the Jewish state over the past few weeks, among them Demi Lovato and popular Eurovision contestant Mahmoud. Spacey's legal cases have been closed, but he has been fired from "House of Cards" and has remained a source of controversy.
Times Are A Changin’: Saudi Citizen Sings Jewish Prayer Marking Jewish New Year
On Thursday, outgoing U.S. Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt posted a video indicative of how much has changed in the Middle East in recent years, with a Saudi citizen singing the moving Jewish prayer “Avinu Malkeinu,” which is sung frequently during the ten days between Rosh Hashanah, which marks the Jewish New Year and was celebrated at the beginning of this week, and Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, in which Jews ask God for forgiveness for their sins.


Mohammed Saud was singing the version of “Avinu Malkeinu” written by the composer Max Janowski.

According to Jewish belief, on Rosh Hashanah God opens the book of life and death to decide who will live or die in the coming year; he closes the book on Yom Kippur, making the ten days noteworthy for serious introspection. On Yom Kippur, Jews are permitted to ask for forgiveness for their sins against God and sins they are unaware they have committed, but any sins against their fellow man must be dealt with by having apologized to the person who was hurt in the process and asking for their forgiveness personally.
Memorial service to be held in Ari Fuld's honor
On Sunday, a dedication and memorial ceremony will be held in honor of Ari Fuld who was stabbed and killed by a terrorist just over one year ago.

The Ari Fuld Project, which Fuld's widow, Miriam Fuld, founded with the non-profit organization Standing Together, completed fund raising for a "hospitality truck," something that Fuld was trying to fund around the time of his death.

The truck is meant to help IDF soldiers and was intended to be in memory of Fuld's friend Yehoshua Friedberg, a lone soldier from Canada who was murdered by terrorists in 1993. Now, the truck will have Fuld and Friedberg's photos side-by-side.

The ceremony will be held on Fuld's first yahrzeit (first anniversary of his death) at Gush Etzion Junction, where he was murdered.

Before he succumbed to his wounds, Fuld shot the terrorist that stabbed him, preventing him from harming anyone else. For this act of bravery, Fuld was posthumously awarded Israel's Medal of Valor.

At the age of 18 Fuld moved from New York to Israel and enlisted to the Golani Brigade, an IDF infantry unit. He later served as a reservist in an elite paratrooper unit and served in Efrat's counter-terrorism unit. He was a rabbi, educator, fundraiser, karate instructor and pro-Israel activist.
One of the Last Living Heroes of Israel's Fight for Independence
At 99, Harold "Smoky" Simon is one of the heroes of Israel's War of Independence. He was Chief of Air Operations in the war after flying as a navigator-bombardier for the South African Air Force (SAAF) during World War II. In 1948, as newlyweds, Simon and his wife, Myra, who had been a meteorologist in the SAAF, joined a South African Zionist Federation group to volunteer to fight in Israel. "Fighting the Nazis gave us the skills and the experience we needed to fight for Israel," he says.

"We had to muster all of our nerve to do the job against these powerful enemies. We were up against six Arab armies - the Egyptians were supplied by the Brits, the Syrians by the French, and we didn't have a single combat plane of our own." Israel had old German planes sold by the Czechs, smuggled in and reassembled.

Simon reminds us of Arab League Secretary-General Abdul Rachman Azzam Pasha, who said on May 1, 1948: "If the Zionists dare to establish a state, the massacres we would unleash would dwarf anything which Genghis Khan and Hitler perpetrated." Simon continues, "These were difficult times. None of us knew how it would turn out. But as proud as I'd been to be one of millions fighting to defeat the Nazis, it was even more emotional when you are part of a small bunch fighting for your own people, your own country."

"With all the odds against us then, there is far more than human effort behind that victory. Returning to our ancient land, we are living a miracle of biblical proportions here." In 1968, Simon was elected as chairman of World Machal, representing nearly 5,000 volunteers from 59 countries who fought in the War of Independence. He has served in that capacity for a half-century.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Town of Franklin
September 16, 2019

Macon County Economic Development Commission
July 11, 2019 Meeting
SCC - Macon - Franklin, North Carolina

MINUTES

Present: David Hubbs, Vice-Chair; Barbara McRae, Secretary; Tommy Jenkins, Executive Director; Ken Murphy; Bill Futral, Mark West, Roger Plemons, Cory McCall. Guests: Robin Jenkins, Luke Barber (reporter/Franklin Press)

Absent: Johnny Mira-Knippel, Chair; Brain Stiehler, Jim Breedlove, Brett Murphy, Karl Gillespie, Ronnie Beale, Derek Roland

In the absence of Chairman Johnny Mire-Knippel, Vide-Chair David Hubbs conducted the meeting.

Mark West: Motion to approve minutes of May 9, 2019 meeting.
Bill Futral: Second.
Passed unanimously.

Mr Hubbs introduced Noah Wilson, Director of Growing Outdoor Partnerships, who gave a presentation on this regional effort.

Growing Outdoor Partnerships

Economic development and outdoor recreation are coming together in the region, Mr Wilson said. Last year, partners created 200 outdoor industry jobs in the 25 Western North Carolina Counties his project covers.

Growing Outdoor Partnerships is funded by ARC [editors note: Appalachian Regional Commission URL] and is considered a pilot for other Appalachian communities that are moving toward a goal of healthy people, healthy places. The effort is part of an ARC commitment to replace the economic importance of coal in the region. In Macon County, the loss of the Caterpillar plant was part of a cascade of economic impacts related to the decline of coal mining.
The question ARC considered is: How can we help these rural counties use recreation as a driver?

Noting "You can't outsource the mountains," Mr Wilson explained that, despite the popularity of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, and other outdoor attractions, the Appalachians have not been as successfully branded as the Rockies.

The project includes six basic areas of focus:

1. Workforce development. The goal: anyone who wnats a job in the outdoor space can get a job and anyone who needs workers can find an employee.

Efforts to build workforce include creation of five or six certificate programs at WCU [editors note: Western Carolina University URL], such as Masters in Recreation. The degrees are given through established departments of the school.

Another aspect of workforce creation is participation by Growing Outdoor Partnerships in a large outdoor-retailers show. EDC member Cory McCall serves on the GOP advisory board and attended the show this year.

Mr Wilson also mentioned the partnership's recruiting efforts and a new textile programs to promote a resurgence of sewing work in WNC 9Tents, outdoor gear and kayaks, for example). This requires specialized sewing skills but build on skills many in thie regional already posses.

2. Expanding entrepreneurship & capital access. Mountain BizWorks is the primary manager & fiscal agent of the customized training portion of this effort. Capital access is through Capital Investment Fund, SW Commission loan fund; and NCI for larger projects.

3. Regional Branding & Marketing. The Most-Visited Places (GSMNP and BR Parkay) are in our backyard, but "all the imagery is Rocky Mountains." How do we fill that brand out? We can leverage it through all partnerships, including regional TDAs and TDCs.

\4. Connecting supply chains. Downloadable data is available through Manufactured NC, supply chain working group. We need to figure out what we can make in NC, and market it well, Mr Wilson said. Who has those capacities? He noted that people want US manufactured items. "There is opportunity, catcvh that wave!"

5. Weaving together regional outdoor community. Organize all segments around supply chains. Identify the parties: Marketing and branding. Infrastructure. Local government. Summer camps. Permitting agencies. Lawyers and accountants who understand seasonal cycles, how pieces fit together.

An annual regional conference bringning all partners together has been held at WCU, but has outgrown it and moved to Asheville:

Outdoor Economy Conference: October 10, Crown Plaza, Asheville.

6. Driving Economic Development. It is important for developers to understand the culture of the outdoors, what makes someone in that industry take notice of you, how you dress. "Make plans to build an industry."

Discussion on an Outdoor Economy

Noah Wilson's presentation stimulated a lengthy discussion on how Macon County can develop its own outdoor economy. Following are some of the questions and thoughts members expressed.

Bill Futral: How do you get the word out?

Noah Wilson: Networking

Ken Murphy: Is Franklin Chamber equipped to get the word out? He suggested mini-courses for merchants and others, so they know how to answer visitors' questions, re "What is there to do here?"

Cory McCall & Ken Murphy: Something like "Heart of Brevard" - map of county with locations of waterfalls, overlays that show mountain bike trails, etc. Perhaps on Outdoor 76 building.

Noah Wilson: Existing businesses are a catalyst for the industry, as anyone who wants to put a business in the county tends to be someone who wants to be outdoors.

Cory McCall: The outdoor industry includes more than just "earthy" pursuits like hiking. ATVs, fishing, and much more are part of it.

Ken Murphy: What activities are going on that we could participate in that include outreach to municipal areas?

Noah Wilson: How do you ensure that we're marketing to right people, being smart with our dollar?

Cory McCall: We need to coordinate branding - run with a strong, consistent brand.

Tommy Jenkins: The thought The thought in the past was that Asheville was the center of this, but you (GOP) are doing a good job of spreading it out.

Noah Wilson: There are 19 projects in this program; every one has a rural focus.

Tommy Jenkins: We have as a community a lack of focus on planning for outdoor recreation. This would be a convenient time to look at how to develop a strategic plan from a community perspective on how to develop our outdoor economy. Cory serves on Growing Outdoors Partnerships' advisory board. I have asked him to develop a working group to do a strategic plan for the county.

Cory McCall: I've been impressed with individuals on the advisory board. There is great potential in our community... I've been shocked at how many people commented on the outdoor recreation economy, asked about interviews, wanted quotes. This is prime time to step up and ride this wave. We need to maximize how we capitalize on this and develop a feasible plan.

Tommy Jenkins: It is important to reach out to others in this sector, include them and get their input. I will get together with Cory next week, develop a timeline, see who we can pull in from the community. We'll depend on Bill Futral for Highlands input.

Ken Murphy: Part of this should be working with other counties in the region.

Cory McCall: Everyone understands that we're all in the same boat. We're more connected than ever. We have no option - we have to work together. The emphasis is on rural.

Tommy Jenkins referred to a handout showing $1.64 billion per year spent on outdoor recreation in 11th Congressional District. [editor's note: the handout was not included in the agenda packet]

Cory McCall: It is exciting to see our region taking a lead on this.

Noah Wilson: We have been building organically. We need to do this as a region, build out brand and run with it.


Motion on Strategic Plan

Barbara McRae moved and Cory McCall seconded that we proceed with deveoping a strategic plan for the county on the outdoor recreation economy. The motion passed unanimously. (As noted above, Mr Jenkins has asked Cory MCCall to lead this effort. He asked Bill Futral to represent Highlands in the working group.)

Director's Report

Mr Jenkins did not have a written report but gave a brief oral report. Highlights include:

• We continue to work on some projects involving new retail on 441 bypass.
• EDC is working on a company expansion that would add quite a few jobs. We are doing a grant application for that project.
• Braodband continues to be a matter of importance. Otto community's Little Tennessee Broadband iniative is going forward. There is movement on their work with Haywood EMC, and that could impact Scaly Mountain as well.

(Aside. David Hubbs: Starlink, Elon Musk's initiative, launched 60 satellites in May. These are the first 60 of about 12,000 he will eventually put in orbit. His intention is to provide internet access from low earth orbit to the entire planet. With an antennaae [editor's note: correct spelling is antenna] the size of a pizza box, that would give you 40 mg. [editor's note: it is unknown what HUbbs was trying to say. The goal is to provide Gigabit service to rural and underserved customers. See x for more information on the project.] Initial launch is expected in May. A few days after launch, a guy in the Netherlands got a video of train of satellites going across. No word on how much the service will cost. Probably by 2024-2025 Starlink will start providing service.)

• Workforce development: EDC is working with NC Career Center, staying on top of demand for employees.

Other

Barbara McRae provided information on several projects:

• Upcoming charette for Franklin Comprehensice Plan (June 17-19).
• Status of work and funding for onumental staue planned for Little Tennessee River and Nikwasi Mound area.
• Recent expansion of Women's History Trail to 14 sites.
• Decision of Cerokee Tribal Council to place $150,000 recurring line item in their budget to fund Nikwasi Initiative. This will allow NI to hire staff and fund other expenses.

Having no additional business, the meeting adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Barbara McRae, Secretary



B.) Discussion on Love Street Property - Joyce Handley

C.) Discussion on Waiving Tap Fees for Macon County's New Dog Park - Town Manager Summer Woodard

Macon County has requested that the Town of Franklin waive all tap fees associated with the dog park the county is building on Phillips Street. A transcribed copy is posted below:

Ms Woodard, Mayor Scott and Honorable Councilmembers,

I hope this letter finds each of you well. As you are aware, construction of a new dog park facility is currently underway, on the 7.35 acre tract of land owned by Macon County, located inside the Town of Franklin. The property, which is bordered by Phillips Street to the East, is more particularly describes PIN# 659418589 in records furnished by the Macon County Tax Office. [editor's note: Link to property description on the county website http://gis2.maconnc.org/lightmap/#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/63053&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comProperty/PropertyDetails.aspx#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/63053&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com?PID=6594185859 ]

Upon completion, the fenced-in dog park will contain public restrooms, a walking trail and additional parking. We feel strongly, that this $120,000 investment will benefit residents and visitors to both Macon County and the Town of Franklin. In light of the mutual benefits this facility will provide, we would respectfully request that the Town Council consider waiving all tap fees associated with the proposed new dog park facility.

Kindest Regards,

Derek C Roland
Macon County, Manager

Latest Tech Trends, Their Problems, And How to Solve Them

 Cache   

Few IT professionals are unaware of the rapid emergence of 5G, Internet of Things or IoT, edge-fog-cloud or core computing, microservices, and artificial intelligence known as machine learning or AI/ML.  These new technologies hold enormous promise for transforming IT and the customer experience with the problems that they solve.  It’s important to realize that like all technologies, they introduce new processes and subsequently new problems.  Most are aware of the promise, but few are aware of the new problems and how to solve them.

5G is a great example.  It delivers 10 to 100 times more throughput than 4G LTE and up to 90% lower latencies.  Users can expect throughput between 1 and 10Gbps with latencies at approximately 1 ms.  This enables large files such as 4K or 8K videos to be downloaded or uploaded in seconds not minutes.  5G will deliver mobile broadband and can potentially make traditional broadband obsolete just as mobile telephony has essentially eliminated the vast majority of landlines. 

5G mobile networking technology makes industrial IoT more scalable, simpler, and much more economically feasible.  Whereas 4G is limited to approximately 400 devices per Km2, 5G increases that number of devices supported per Km2 to approximately 1,000,000 or a 250,000% increase. The performance, latency, and scalability are why 5G is being called transformational.  But there are significant issues introduced by 5G.  A key one is the database application infrastructure.

Analysts frequently cite the non-trivial multi-billion dollar investment required to roll-out 5G.  That investment is primarily focused on the antennas and fiber optic cables to the antennas.  This is because 5G is based on a completely different technology than 4G.  It utilizes millimeter waves instead of microwaves.  Millimeter waves are limited to 300 meters between antennas.  The 4G microwaves can be as far as 16 Km apart.  That is a major difference and therefore demands many more antennas and optical cables to those antennas to make 5G work effectively.  It also means it will take considerable time before rural areas are covered by 5G and even then, it will be a degraded 5G. 

The 5G infrastructure investment not being addressed is the database application infrastructure.  The database is a foundational technology for analytics.  IT Pros simply assume it will be there for their applications and microservices. Everything today is interconnected. The database application infrastructure is generally architected for the volume and performance coming from the network.  That volume and performance is going up by an order of magnitude.  What happens when the database application infrastructure is not upgraded to match?  The actual user performance improves marginally or not at all.  It can in fact degrade as volumes overwhelm the database applications not prepared for them.  Both consumers and business users become frustrated.  5G devices cost approximately 30% more than 4G – mostly because those devices need both a 5G and 4G modem (different non-compatible technologies).  The 5G network costs approximately 25% more than 4G.  It is understandable that anyone would be frustrated when they are spending considerably more and seeing limited improvement, no improvement, or negative improvement.  The database application infrastructure becomes the bottleneck.  When consumers and business users become frustrated, they go somewhere else, another website, another supplier, or another partner.  Business will be lost.

Fortunately, there is still time as the 5G rollout is just starting with momentum building in 2020 with complete implementations not expected until 2022, at the earliest.  However, IT organizations need to start planning their application infrastructure upgrades to match the 5G rollout or may end up suffering the consequences.

IoT is another technology that promises to be transformative.  It pushes intelligence to the edge of the network enabling automation that was previously unthinkable.  Smarter homes, smarter cars, smarter grids, smarter healthcare, smarter fitness, smarter water management, and more.  IoT has the potential to radically increase efficiencies and reduce waste.  Most of the implementations to date have been in consumer homes and offices.  These implementations rely on the WiFi in the building they reside. 

The industrial implementations have been not as successful…yet.  Per Gartner, 65 to 85% of Industrial IoT to date have been stuck in pilot mode with 28% of those for more than 2 years.  There are three key reasons for this.  The first are the limitations of 4G of 400 devices per Km2.  This limitation will be fixed as 5G rolls out.  The second is the same issue as 5G, database application infrastructure not suited for the volume and performance required by industrial IoT.  And the third is latency from the IoT edge devices to the analytics, either in the on-premises data center (core), or cloud.  Speed of light latency is a major limiting factor for real-time analytics and real-time actionable information.  This has led to the very rapid rise of edge-fog-cloud or core computing.

Moving analytic processing out to the edge or fog significantly reduces distance latency between where the data is being collected and where it is being analyzed.  This is crucial for applications such as autonomous vehicles.  The application must make decisions in milliseconds not seconds.  It may have to decide whether a shadow in the road is actually a shadow, a reflection, a person, or a dangerous hazard to be avoided.  The application must make that decision immediately and cannot wait.  By pushing the application closer to the data collection, it can make that decision in the timely manner that’s required.  Smart grids, smart cities, smart water management, smart traffic management, are all examples requiring fog (near the edge) or edge computing analytics.  This solves the problem of distance latency; however, it does not resolve analytical latency.  Edge and fog computing typically lack the resources to provide ultra-fast database analytics.  This has led to the deployment of microservices

Microservices have become very popular over the past 24 months.   They tightly couple a database application with its database that has been extremely streamlined to do only the few things the microservice requires.  The database may be a neutered relational, time series, key value, JSON, XML, object, and more.  The database application and its database are inextricably linked.  The combined microservice is then pushed down to the edge or fog compute device and its storage.  Microservices have no access to any other microservices data or database.  If it needs access to another microservice data element, it’s going to be difficult and manually labor-intensive. Each of the microservices must be reworked to grant that access, or the data must be copied and moved via an extract transfer and load (ETL) process, or the data must be duplicated in ongoing manner.  Each of these options are laborious, albeit manageable, for a handful of microservices.  But what about hundreds or thousands of microservices, which is where it’s headed?  This sprawl becomes unmanageable and ultimately, unsustainable, even with AI/ML.

AI/ML is clearly a hot tech trend today.  It’s showing up everywhere in many applications.  This is because standard CPU processing power is now powerful enough to run AI / machine learning algorithms.  AI/ML is showing up typically in one of two different variations.  The first has a defined specific purpose.  It is utilized by the vendor to automate a manual task requiring some expertise.  An example of this is in enterprise storage.  The AI/ML is tasked with placing data based on performance, latency, and data protection policies and parameters determined by the administrator.  It then matches that to the hardware configuration.  If performance should fall outside of the desired parameters AI/ML looks to correct the situation without human intervention.  It learns from experience and automatically makes changes to accomplish the required performance and latency.   The second AI/ML is a tool kit that enables IT pros to create their own algorithms. 

The 1st is an application of AI/ML.  It obviously cannot be utilized outside the tasks it was designed to do. The 2nd is a series of tools that require considerable knowledge, skill, and expertise to be able to utilize.  It is not an application.  It merely enables applications to be developed that take advantage of the AI/ML engine.  This requires a very steep learning curve.

Oracle is the first vendor to solve each and every one of these tech trend problems. The Oracle Exadata X8M and Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) X8 are uniquely suited to solve the 5G and IoT application database infrastructure problem, the edge-fog-core microservices problem, and the AI/ML usability problem. 

It starts with the co-engineering.  The compute, memory, storage, interconnect, networking, operating system, hypervisor, middleware, and the Oracle 19c Database are all co-engineered together.  Few vendors have complete engineering teams for every layer of the software and hardware stacks to do the same thing.  And those who do, have shown zero inclination to take on the intensive co-engineering required.  Oracle Exadata alone has 60 exclusive database features not found in any other database system including others running the same Oracle Database. Take for example Automatic Indexing.  It occurs multiple orders of magnitude faster than the most skilled database administrator (DBA) and delivers noticeably superior performance.  Another example is data ingest.  Extensive parallelism is built-into every Exadata providing unmatched data ingest.  And keep in mind, the Oracle Autonomous Database is utilizing the exact same Exadata Database Machine.  The results of that co-engineering deliver unprecedented Database application latency reduction, response time reduction, and performance increases.  This enables the application Database infrastructure to match and be prepared for the volume and performance of 5G and IoT.

The ODA X8 is ideal for edge or fog computing coming in at approximately 36% lower total cost of ownership (TCO) over 3 years than commodity white box servers running databases.  It’s designed to be a plug and play Oracle Database turnkey appliance.  It runs the Database application too.  Nothing is simpler and no white box server can match its performance.

The Oracle Exadata X8M is even better for the core or fog computing where it’s performance, scalability, availability and capability are simply unmatched by any other database system.  It too is architected to be exceedingly simple to implement, operate, and manage. 

The combination of the two working in conjunction in the edge-fog-core makes the application database latency problems go away.  They even solve the microservices problems.  Each Oracle Exadata X8M and ODA X8 provide pluggable databases (PDBs).  Each PDB is its own unique database working off the same stored data in the container database (CDB).  Each PDB can be the same or different type of Oracle Database including OLTP, data warehousing, time series, object, JSON, key value, graphical, spatial, XML, even document database mining.  The PDBs are working on virtual copies of the data.  There is no data duplication.  There are no ETLs.  There is no data movement.  There are no data islands.  There are no runaway database licenses and database hardware sprawl.  Data does not go stale before it can be analyzed.  Any data that needs to be accessed by a particular or multiple PDBs can be easily configured to do so.  Edge-fog-core computing is solved.  If the core needs to be in a public cloud, Oracle solves that problem as well with the Oracle Autonomous Database providing the same capabilities of Exadata and more.

That leaves the AI/ML usability problem.  Oracle solves that one too.  Both Oracle Engineered systems and the Oracle Autonomous Database have AI/ML engineered inside from the onset.  Not just a tool-kit on the side.  Oracle AI/ML comes with pre-built, documented, and production-hardened algorithms in the Oracle Autonomous Database cloud service.  DBAs do not have to be data scientists to develop AI/ML applications.  They can simply utilize the extensive Oracle library of AI/ML algorithms in Classification, Clustering, Time Series, Anomaly Detection, SQL Analytics, Regression, Attribute Importance, Association Rules, Feature Extraction, Text Mining Support, R Packages, Statistical Functions, Predictive Queries, and Exportable ML Models.  It’s as simple as selecting the algorithms to be used and using them.  That’s it.  No algorithms to create, test, document, QA, patch, and more.

Taking advantage of AI/ML is as simple as implementing Oracle Exadata X8M, ODA X8, or the Oracle Autonomous Database.   Oracle solves the AI/ML usability problem.

The latest tech trends of 5G, Industrial IoT, edge-fog-core or cloud computing, microservices, and AI/ML have the potential to truly be transformative for IT organizations of all stripes.  But they bring their own set of problems.  Fortunately, for organizations of all sizes, Oracle solves those problems.

IT’S HERE: D-Wave Announces 2048-Qubit Quantum Computing System, Theoretically Capable of Breaking All Classical Encryption, Including Military-Grade

 Tuesday, September 24, 2019 by: Mike Adams
Tags: big governmentbreakthroughcomputingcryptocurrencyD-Wavedecryptionencryptiongoodscienceinventionsquantum computingqubitssurveillance

 Over the last several days, we’ve highlighted the stunning breakthrough in “quantum supremacy” announced by Google and NASA. Across other articles, we’ve revealed how quantum computing translates highly complex algorithmic computational problems into simple, linear (or geometric) problems in terms of computational complexity. In practical terms, quantum computers are code breakers, and they can break all known classical encryption, including the encryption used in cryptocurrency, military communications, financial transactions and even private encrypted communications.

As the number of qubits (quantum bits) in quantum computers exceeds the number of bits used in classical encryption, it renders that encryption practically pointless. A 256-qubit quantum computer, in other words, can easily break 256-bit encryption. A 512-bit qubit computer can break 512-bit encryption, and so on.

Those of us who are the leading publishers in independent media have long known that government-funded tech advancements are typically allowed to leak to the public only after several years of additional advances have already been achieved. Stated in practical terms, the rule of thumb is that by the time breakthrough technology gets reported, the government is already a decade beyond that.

Thus, when Google’s scientists declare “quantum supremacy” involving a 53-qubit quantum computer, you can confidently know that in their secret labs, they very likely already have quantum computers operating with a far greater number of qubits.

At the time we were assembling those stories, we were not yet aware that D-Wave, a quantum computing company that provides exotic hardware to Google and other research organizations, has announced a 2048-qubit quantum computer.

The system is called the “D-Wave 2000Q” platform, and it features 2048 qubits, effectively allowing it to break military-grade encryption that uses 2048 or fewer encryption bits.

As explained in a D-Wave Systems brochure:

The D-Wave 2000Q system has up to 2048 qubits and 5600 couplers. To reach this scale, it uses 128,000 Josephson junctions, which makes the D-Wave 2000Q QPU by far the most complex superconducting integrated circuit ever built.

Other facts from D-Wave about its superconducting quantum computing platform:

  • The system consumes 25 kW of power, meaning it can be run on less electricity than what is typically wired into a residential home (which is typically 200 amps x 220 v, or 44 kW).
  • The system produces virtually no heat. “The required water cooling is on par with what a kitchen tap can provide,” says the D-Wave brochure.
  • The system provides a platform for truly incredible improvements in computational efficiency involving machine learning, financial modeling, neural networking, modeling proteins in chemistry and — most importantly — “factoring integers.”

“Factoring integers” means breaking encryption

The “factoring integers” line, found in the D-Wave brochure, is what’s causing unprecedented nervousness across cryptocurrency analysts right now, some of whom seem to be pushing the bizarre idea that quantum computers are an elaborate hoax in order to avoid having to admit that quantum computing renders cryptocurrency cryptography algorithms obsolete. (At least as currently structured, although perhaps there is a way around this in the future.)

“Factoring integers” is the key to breaking encryption. In fact, it is the extreme difficulty of factoring very large numbers that makes encryption incredibly difficult to break using classical computing. But as we have explained in this previous article, quantum computing translates exponentially complex mathematical problems into simple, linear (or you could call it “geometric”) math, making the computation ridiculously simple. (In truth, quantum computers are “computing” anything. The universe is doing the computations. The quantum computer is merely an interface that talks to the underlying computational nature of physical reality, which is all based on a hyper-computational matrix that calculates cause-effect solutions for all subatomic particles and atomic elements, across the entire cosmos. Read more below…)

Depending on the number of bits involved, a quantum computer can take a problem that might require literally one billion years to solve on a classical computer and render a short list of likely answers in less than one second. (Again, depending on many variables, this is just a summary of the scale, not a precise claim about the specifications of a particular system.)

Given that D-Wave’s quantum computers cost only a few million dollars — while there are billions of dollars’ worth of crypto floating around that could be spoofed and redirected if you have a system that can easily crack cryptography — it seems to be a matter of economic certainty that, sooner or later, someone will acquire a quantum computing system and use it to steal cryptocurrency wallets by spoofing transactions. To be clear, I’m sure D-Wave likely vets its customers rather carefully, and the company would not knowingly provide its quantum computing tech to an organization that appeared to be motivated by malicious intent. Yet, realistically, we’ve all seen historical examples of advanced technology getting into the hands of twisted, evil people such as those who run the Federal Reserve, for example.

D-Wave quantum computers don’t really “compute” anything; they send mathematical questions into multiple dimensions, then retrieve the most likely answers

So how does quantum computing really work? As we’ve explained in several articles, these systems don’t really carry out “computing” in the classic work sense of the term. There is no “computing” taking place in the D-Wave hardware. The best way to describe this is to imagine quantum computers as computational stargates. They submit mathematical questions into a hyper-dimensional reality (the quantum reality of superposition, etc.), and the universe itself carries out the computation because the very fabric of reality is mathematical at its core. As some brilliant scientists say, the universe IS mathematics, and thus the fabric of reality cannot help but automatically compute solutions in every slice of time, with seemingly infinite computational capability down to the subatomic level.

Put another way, the world of quantum phenomena is constantly trying out all possible combinations and permutations of atomic spin states and subatomic particles, and it naturally and automatically derives the best combination that achieves the lowest energy state (i.e. the least amount of chaos).

The end result is that a short list of the best possible solutions “magically” (although it isn’t magic, it just seems like magic) appears in the spin states of the elements which represent binary registers. Thus, the answers to your computational problems are gifted back to you from the universe, almost as if the universe itself is a God-like computational guru that hands out free answers to any question that you can manage to present in binary. (Technically speaking, this also proves that the universe was created by an intelligent designer who expresses creation through mathematics.)

Programmers can easily break encryption codes using standard C++ commands that interface with the quantum portal

All of these quantum functions, by the way, are controlled by standard computer language code, including C++, Python and MATLAB. The system has its own API, and you can even submit commands to the quantum realm via its “Quantum Machine Instruction” (QMI) commands. As D-Wave explains in its brochure:

The D-Wave 2000Q system provides a standard Internet API (based on RESTful services), with client libraries available for C/C++, Python, and MATLAB. This interface allows users to access the system either as a cloud resource over a network, or integrated into their high-performance computing environments and data centers. Access is also available through D-Wave’s hosted cloud service. Using D-Wave’s development tools and client libraries, developers can create algorithms and applications within their existing environments using industry-standard tools.

While users can submit problems to the system in a number of different ways, ultimately a problem represents a set of values that correspond to the weights of the qubits and the strength of the couplers. The system takes these values along with other user-specified parameters and sends a single quantum machine instruction (QMI) to the QPU. Problem solutions correspond to the optimal configuration of qubits found; that is, the lowest points in the energy landscape. These values are returned to the user program over the network.

In other words, breaking cryptography is as simple as submitting the large integer to the quantum system as a series of bits which are then translated into electron spin states by the quantum hardware. From there, a “go” command is issued, and the universe solves the equation in a way that automatically derives the best combinations of multiple qubit spin states to achieve the lowest overall energy state (i.e. the simplest solution with the least chaos). A short list of the best possible factors of the large integer are returned in a time-sliced representation of the binary registers, which can be read over a regular network like any subroutine request.

From there, a classical computer can then try factoring the large integer with the short list of the best answers from the quantum system, using standard CPUs and code logic. Within a few tries from the short list, the correct factors are easily found. Once you have the factors, you now have the decryption keys to the original encrypted message, so decryption is effortless. In effect, you have used quantum computing to “cheat” the keys out of the system and hand them to you on a silver platter. (Or, in some cases, a holmium platter lined with platinum, or whatever exotic elements are being used in the quantum spin state hardware.)

Any competent programmer who has access to this technology, in other words, can break encryption almost without effort. The programming logic is not complex at all. The difficulty in such systems is in the hardware control systems, including spin state “reads” and “writes,” which are strongly affected by temperature and electromagnetic interference. The exotic hardware is the real breakthrough in all this, not the computational part. (Quantum computers are physics oracles, in a sense. The physics is the challenge, not the computer code.)

Most people cannot grasp quantum computing, but that’s not a reason to pretend it isn’t real

One of the more curious things I’ve found recently is that some writers and publishers who don’t understand quantum computing are trending in the direction of pretending it doesn’t exist. According to some, Google’s 53-qubit announcement was a hoax, which must also mean that, in their view, D-Wave Systems isn’t real and doesn’t sell quantum computers at all.

That is not a rational position. There’s no doubt that D-Wave is a real company with real hardware, and that Google already possesses 2048-qubit quantum computing capabilities. Furthermore, Google and the NSA have every reason to keep this fact secret for as long as possible, so that they can continue to scrape everyone’s “encrypted” emails and financial transactions, all of which can be retroactively decrypted any time the NSA wants to look more closely at your activities.

To me, it has long been obvious that the cosmos itself is inherently computational. Just look at the collapse of probability waves found in the orbital shells of electrons. It should be self-evident that the universe is computing solutions at the subatomic level in every instant, effortlessly and without apparent cost. The very framework of the cosmos is driven by mathematics and rapid computational solutions. Once you realize how much subatomic phenomena is quantized, it becomes blatantly apparent that the universe is digitized and mathematical. The entire construct in which we exist, in other words, is a mathematical simulation, perhaps created by God for the purpose of amusing himself by watching our collective stupidity.

D-Wave Systems, by the way, knows exactly what’s up with all this. Their goal is to make quantum computing available to the masses. They also seem to hint at the hyperdimensional reality of how quantum computing works. From their brochure: (emphasis added)

While the D-Wave quantum computer is the most advanced in the world, the quantum computing revolution has only begun. Our vision is of a future where quantum computers will be accessible and of value to all, solving the world’s most complex computing problems. This will require advances in many dimensions and contributions from experts in diverse domains. It is exciting to see increasing investment worldwide, advances in research and technology, and a growing ecosystem of developers, users, and applications needed to deliver on that vision.

I can tell that the D-Wave people are some very smart folks. Maybe if these systems get at least an order of magnitude less expensive, we could buy one, install it in our mass spec lab, and start throwing computational questions at the universe.

Personally, if I had one of these systems, I would use it to solve protein folding questions for all the obvious reasons. Then I would probably have it start looking for blood and urine biomarkers for cancer. You could make a fortune applying quantum computing to solving horse race betting and handicapping equations, but that would seem silly compared to what the system is really capable of. Another application would be solving atomic decay patterns to derive the best way to synthesize antimatter, which can be used to power faster-than-light drive systems. (Which I cover at OblivionAgenda.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/66696&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com in a series of lectures. The FTL lectures have yet to be posted there, but are coming soon.)

Sadly, the deep state will probably use this technology to surveil humanity and enslave everyone with AI facial recognition and “precrime” predictive accusations that get translated into red flag laws. Once the tech giants profile you psychologically and behaviorally, a quantum computing system can easily compute your likelihood of becoming the next mass shooter. You could be found guilty by “quantum law” even if you’ve never pulled the trigger.

As with all technologies, this one will be abused by governments to control and enslave humanity. It doesn’t mean the technology is at fault but rather the lack of morality and ethics among fallen humans.

How Infrastructure and Operations Can Enable Digital Change

 Cache   

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) organizations in the digital era are on the cusp of dramatic change. From the death of the data center to the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution, every new wave of digital has a profound impact on the way I&O operates. And as I&O rapidly evolves from a support function to a strategic one, IT teams are no longer seen as service providers, but instead as enablers of business transformation. 

I&O leaders must refocus their priorities to meet the changing expectations of IT leadership to avoid losing resources and relevance within the organization

“To stay relevant in today’s enterprise, I&O needs to become more agile and customer-centric,” says Chirag Dekate, Senior Director Analyst, Gartner. “As digital adoption grows, top-performing I&O organizations are rethinking their structures, metrics and skill sets to align more closely with business stakeholders.”

To improve efficiency, increase productivity and enable digital business transformation, I&O leaders must adapt their organizations around changing CIO priorities. Dekate outlines three ways to do so.

Embrace new technologies and promote agility

In the Gartner 2019 CIO Survey, IT leaders reported digital initiatives, revenue growth and operational excellence among their top priorities. Traditional I&O areas of concern, such as modernization of legacy systems and ERP, weighed in much lower on the list. 

I&O leaders must refocus their priorities to meet the changing expectations of IT leadership to avoid losing resources and relevance within the organization. Adopting new technologies and processes that nurture digital business can demonstrate I&O’s commitment to transformation efforts. This includes technologies such as cloud, AI and automation, Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing.

I&O leaders can also ensure that their teams are prepared to deliver on digital initiatives by accelerating agility. Simplify processes and embrace intelligent automation for low-value, repetitive tasks to free up time for more strategic efforts.

[swg_ad]

Speed up to the pace of business

CIOs report that IT is a core enabler of change in 94% of organizations that are revising their business models. In today’s era of digital transformation, this means that IT teams have the opportunity to directly impact their organization’s bottom line. However, change happens quickly, and I&O needs to speed up operations to be effective in supporting digital transformation. 

I&O leaders must reshape their organizations to deliver solutions at the rate and frequency that business requires them, rather than when I&O can deliver them. Often, this will mean a more product-centric operating model. Think beyond traditional silos like storage, networking or cloud, and instead deploy resources based on specific use cases. Restructure your I&O team to prioritize tasks that have a noticeable business impact and support CIO initiatives. 

Transform people for digital productivity

Delivering successful digital initiatives requires new skills. As I&O organizations embrace digital transformation, reskilling teams becomes necessary. Whether hiring new talent or retraining and restructuring existing teams, focusing on people will enable I&O to cultivate digital productivity.

New key performance indicators (KPIs) that focus on customer and enterprise value will also help I&O support digital initiatives. KPIs that encourage outcome-oriented execution will help ensure that activities align with the expectations of the CIO and other business stakeholders.

Extreme Gifts StackStorm to Linux Foundation

 Cache   

Extreme Networks handed over governance of StackStorm, its open source workflow automation platform, to the Linux Foundation.

It will continue as a standalone project under the Linux Foundation’s governance, said Arpit Joshipura, GM for networking, edge, and IoT at the Linux Foundation (LF).

“Given the focus of the community and the requirements from the project regarding the neutral governance provided by LF, the current plan is to host the project under the LF,” Joshipura said in an email to SDxCentral.

StackStorm allows users to automate workflows across data center servers, clouds, and containers using an infrastructure-as-code approach to DevOps. So, for example, after receiving an IT alert in the data center, the open source software kicks in to automate remediation. Other common applications include continuous deployment (CD), ChatOps, and automated security response.

Comment on CDP-04 – Week 3 – Module 3-2 by Devon Turcotte

I really, really like the daily log. I mean, when you're trying to be more nutritionally conscious, the first thing a dietitian tells you is to start a food diary. It makes so much sense! Great tool for helping clients to see where they can get the most bang for their job-searching buck. Two questions came to mind while watching the video. 1. What methods have you suggested to clients that work well for encouraging them to network effectively? Networking is scary for a lot of people and many don't know how to cold call or email. With students, I would often suggest connecting with alumni from their institution/program on LinkedIn, because that's some common ground to start from. Any other ideas? 2. Similarly scary is getting feedback on an interview or a networking meeting. Has anyone come up with a good way of getting feedback from potential employers after meetings or interviews? As in, questions that work effectively to draw out quality information, or a particular approach that has worked for a client? Happy week 3!

<u> Job Search Strategies </u> I love that we have an example of how to track the time spent doing job search; I had never thought about this nor have I ever used something like that for myself or my clients. I'm the kind of person who always got jobs whenever I needed one (it always felt like they would just appear out of thin air) it is only in the last 6 years that I had to really do some serious job searching. Using something like the Daily Activities Analysis Form would have been beneficial for my ADHD brain. Again (I feel like I say it a lot) coming from a small tourism-driven town, how people find jobs is always interesting to me. Since most of the positions are level-entry ones, a lot of people find jobs by just walking in a business that has a 'Help Wanted' sign. Other than that, clients know to look on indeed (likely 97% of them use it), then when they come to me, I show them www.alis.alberta.ca#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/90197&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, www.jobbank.gc.ca#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/90197&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com and show them the different website from different employers (fahttps://frhi.taleo.net/careersection/ext_fairmont/moresearch.ftl?&#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/90197&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com#038;lang=en&keyword=canada%20jasper for Jasper Park Lodge, for example). I have also noticed an increase in locals referring people to the Employment & Education Centre where they can use our job binder (all postings from employers advertising through us). Networking is still a big thing, one of my clients was looking for a job after developing a bad reputation in town (was incarcerate and now has a criminal record) and was quite aware that he might have trouble finding work. I was hoping for the best for him as he has great soft skills and such an amazing work history. After looking for about a month or two and checking-in with me every week, one of his friends decided to hire him on a construction project. In this situation, his network is the main reason for his job placement (he was also skilled in the job). One thing that I will start doing as soon as I'm back at work will be to ask my unemployed client to check-in with me on a weekly basis (as they should per our contract) and bring me notes on where they applied and if they heard anything. I may not use the Daily Activities Analysis Form, but I will definitely create something similar that will make sense to my client.

Another great video that gives us lots of food for thoughts. I have been noticing that some of my clients are not 'actively' searching for a job - they are, but they don't spend too much time per day on it. On the bright side, I had a client dropping by to discuss how his job hunting is going and I was happy to hear that he had achieved a good balance between conducting work search and taking time to heal (my client had to leave his job because of a toxic personal relationship - the person is also working there). He spends all morning searching for jobs, applying for different positions, then in the afternoon, he goes for hikes. He is also very open-minded in the sense that he is looking for anything that fits in his skill set, dishwasher, maintenance, plumber, working in a back store. He also has a good network and has been talking to different managers in town. I'm hoping he will find something soon, but at the same time, he is not stress nor does he NEED a job right away. In a small town like Jasper, networking is very important. Everyone knows everyone which can be annoying and negative, but it can also be helpful. It is also important to have a good reputation as I have been noticing that a lot of employers/locals are actively using people's reputations over their qualifications (I wonder if that could go under article 11.2 of the Canadian Human Rights Act). I was happy to read about the three different kinds of recruitment firms. My grandma talks to me a lot about Headhunter (Retained Firm - CES Certification Guide, p. 90) but to me, between them or an agency, there was no difference. I just completed the Interview Coaching for Employment and it was nice to review the different types of interviews, how to prepare for them and the debriefing process. Finally, another part that made total sense for me, is the need to be creative and authentic. Whenever I support a client writing a cover letter, I redirect them towards synonyms or try to find different ways of saying their skills than how it is presented in the job posting. They often think that it is best to use the vocabulary, especially when they know a computer might do the first screening, but I always encourage them to word things differently - employers know their job posting but they don't know their value proposition.

Version 1.0a14 of my PostgreSQL extension for Frontier and Radio is ready for download:

Since the last public release, I fixed a bug in the Mac OS X networking code that would block all Frontier threads while the extension was waiting for a response from the server after submitting a query for execution.

As a side effect of the fix, it is now possible to abort calls into the verbs for executing queries and retrieving multiple/all rows of a result set via the usual cmd/ctrl-period mechanism (or the Kill button of a script window). This will send a request to the server asking it to cancel the current query and close the network connection cleanly, but it will not deallocate all resources associated with the connection on the client side.

This update is strongly recommended for anyone using the extension on Mac OS X. While the original blocking behavior only manifested itself on Mac OS X, the ability to kill queries was also implemted for the Mac OS Classic and Windows versions.

Thanks (again) to Eric Soroos for the bug report.

Huawei announces SmaKit S7 Android tablet

 Cache   

If you thought the Dell Mini 5 (5-inch screen) was big for a phone, you haven’t seen the Huawei SmaKit S7 (7-inch screen)! In all due fairness, the device is considered a MID with 3G voice capabilities, and with Bluetooth you’ll probably be using a headset to talk more often than not. Either way, it looks like another winning announcement from Huawei.

Huawei Smakit S7 Android Tablet With 7 inch Widescreen Display

Here is what the company had to say about the device:

The SmaKit S7 has a 7-inch wide screen with a resolution of 800 x 480. It supports information-sharing across screens to present the same content simultaneously on computers, mobile phones and TV screens. The SmaKit S7 tablet allows users to easily access local information, visit social networking websites and shop from online application stores. To provide end-users with an integrated home solution, Smakit S7 can be connected to home gateway, TV or Android handsets

If you have already seen the designs, it indicate a luxury because it reminds us of a tablet PC design. Through Huawei Smakit S7, a variety of attractive content can be played like TV, phone features and even some computer software can be run on this smartphone. Huawei SmaKit S7 has a 7-inch 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen, runs off a custom Android OS, plays and supports HD video, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, microSD and can be sold with an optional dock that has HDMI and USB outs. The demonstrator states that the S7 has 4 hours of battery and weighs 17.6 oz. The SmaKit S7 is expected to hit the market mid-year. But There is no information about availability on market and pricing.

I’m loving the look and feel of the SmaKit although that sounds a bit perverted when taking the device’s name into consideration (Smack It?). Oh come on… lighten up!

Huawei SmaKit S7








[MWC 2010] Huawei's SmaKit S7 is yet another device from Huawei that features a 7" widescreen display with a 800 x 480 resolution. You will be able to check out its information-sharing capability across displays, being able to present the same content simultaneously on computers, cellphones and TV displays. With the SmaKit S7 tablet, one is able to access local information in a jiffy, visiting social networking websites while making full use of virtual shopping thanks to online application stores.

HDMI-Walk: Attacking HDMI Distribution Networks via Consumer Electronic Control Protocol. (arXiv:1910.02139v1 [cs.CR])

 Cache   

Authors: Luis Puche Rondon, Leonardo Babun, Kemal Akkaya, A. Selcuk Uluagac

The High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is the de-facto standard for Audio/Video interfacing between video-enabled devices. Today, almost tens of billions of HDMI devices exist worldwide and are widely used to distribute A/V signals in smart homes, offices, concert halls, and sporting events making HDMI one of the most highly deployed systems in the world. An important component in HDMI is the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) protocol, which allows for the interaction between devices within an HDMI distribution network. Nonetheless, existing network security mechanisms only protect traditional networking components, leaving CEC outside of their scope. In this work, we identify and tap into CEC protocol vulnerabilities, using them to implement realistic proof-of-work attacks on HDMI distribution networks. We study, how current insecure CEC protocol practices and HDMI distributions may grant an adversary a novel attack surface for HDMI devices otherwise thought to be unreachable. To introduce this novel attack surface, we present HDMI-Walk, which opens a realm of remote and local CEC attacks to HDMI devices. Specifically, with HDMI-Walk, an attacker can perform malicious analysis of devices, eavesdropping, Denial of Service attacks, targeted device attacks, and even facilitate well-known existing attacks through HDMI. With HDMI-Walk, we prove it is feasible for an attacker to gain arbitrary control of HDMI devices. We demonstrate the implementations of both local and remote attacks with commodity HDMI devices. Finally, we discuss security mechanisms to provide impactful and comprehensive security evaluation to these real-world systems while guaranteeing deployability and providing minimal overhead considering the current limitations of the CEC protocol. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work solely investigating the security of HDMI device distribution networks.


          

RAMBO: Repeated And Merged Bloom Filter for Multiple Set Membership Testing (MSMT) in Sub-linear time. (arXiv:1910.02611v1 [cs.DS])

 Cache   

Authors: Gaurav Gupta, Benjamin Coleman, Tharun Medini, Vijai Mohan, Anshumali Shrivastava

Approximate set membership is a common problem with wide applications in databases, networking, and search. Given a set S and a query q, the task is to determine whether q in S. The Bloom Filter (BF) is a popular data structure for approximate membership testing due to its simplicity. In particular, a BF consists of a bit array that can be incrementally updated. A related problem concerning this paper is the Multiple Set Membership Testing (MSMT) problem. Here we are given K different sets, and for any given query q the goal is the find all of the sets containing the query element. Trivially, a multiple set membership instance can be reduced to K membership testing instances, each with the same q, leading to O(K) query time. A simple array of Bloom Filters can achieve that. In this paper, we show the first non-trivial data-structure for streaming keys, RAMBO (Repeated And Merged Bloom Filter) that achieves expected O(sqrt(K) logK) query time with an additional worst case memory cost factor of O(logK) than the array of Bloom Filters. The proposed data-structure is simply a count-min sketch arrangement of Bloom Filters and retains all its favorable properties. We replace the addition operation with a set union and the minimum operation with a set intersection during estimation.

O MUNDO VEM ATÉ FAMALICÃO COM A SEMANA INTERNACIONAL

 Cache   

International Week 2019 realiza-se de 17 a 24 de outubro com inúmeras atividades

Altos representantes de 15 países dos quatro continentes vão ser recebidos nos Paços do Concelho de Vila Nova de Famalicão para a celebração de protocolos de colaboração com o município, no próximo dia 17 de outubro, no arranque da International Week 2019.

DSC_9217.jpg#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/132772&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com

O evento que decorre até dia 24, vai trazer à cidade comitivas internacionais de origens diversas, nomeadamente de Liverpool, Lille, Saint-Fargeau-Ponthierry, Givors, Arteixo entre outras cidades com as quais a cooperação é mais intensa. Estarão ainda presentes representantes do Perú, República Checa, Alemanha, Marrocos, China, Brasil, EUA, entre muitos outros. As comitivas serão compostas por eleitos locais, representantes institucionais, académicos, empresários, câmaras de comércio e indústria, bem como diplomatas com vista ao aprofundamento da cooperação institucional, cultural e económica.

Destaque ainda para a presença de um grupo numeroso de estudantes universitários, que procuram Famalicão para a realização de estágios empresariais, respondendo ao desafio da cidade na atração de talentos.

Isso mesmo explicou o vereador do pelouro da Internacionalização do município, Augusto Lima. Para o responsável municipal, o objetivo da International Week 2019 é “colocar Vila Nova de Famalicão no mundo, quer por via das relações económicas e culturais com vários países estrangeiros, quer por via dos imigrantes que estão a viver no concelho”.

Por isso, o evento envolve um conjunto alargado e diversificado de iniciativas, que abrangem não só a área económica, mas também cultural, desportiva e da juventude.

Um dos pontos altos será a sessão VNF Alliance, que está marcada para as 18h30, do dia 17, no Centro de Estudos Camilianos. A sessão marcará o reforço e a renovação do Manifesto VNF Alliance celebrado em 2018, com a adesão de mais 26 subscritores, que representam outros tantos embaixadores de Famalicão no mundo. Estes juntam-se às quase quatro dezenas de instituições, pessoas e empresas famalicenses que aderiram em 2018.

O objetivo do manifesto é promover internacionalmente as marcas identitárias, empresariais e culturais do território, bem como as oportunidades e o valor intrínseco dos seus recursos, entre outros.

Outro dos momentos altos do evento irá acontecer no dia 22 de outubro, com a receção no município “a cerca de 40 jovens oriundos das Universidades de Liverpool e Lille que vão conhecer as empresas de Famalicão através de visitas técnicas, tendo em vista a preparação de projetos de estágios”, como salientou Augusto Lima.

No dia 20, Famalicão integra o Congresso Mundial do Têxtil com uma iniciativa que vai decorrer no Palácio da Igreja Velha, em Vermoim. O evento que se realiza de 4 em 4 anos, decorre desta vez em Portugal e o município de Vila Nova de Famalicão é uma das entidades parceiras acolhendo a ação networking/ jantar, “uma oportunidade para projetar e dar visibilidade à marca Famalicão Cidade Têxtil e às empresas famalicenses da indústria Têxtil e do vestuário”, como referiu o vereador.

FESTA INTERCULTURAL DAS COMUNIDADES IMIGRANTES

Nem só de economia vive a International Week 2019 de Famalicão, a cultura e interculturalidade, a gastronomia, o lazer e o convívio também vão marcar presença.

Na Praça D. Maria II, bem no centro da cidade, vai decorrer nos dias 19 e 20 a Festa Intercultural com as comunidades imigrantes em Famalicão. São dois dias de festa com as tradições e cultura internacionais caraterísticas dos imigrantes que habitam no concelho. Entre as propostas há música da Ucrânia, poesia de Angola, dança de Cuba e do Brasil, entre muita mais animação.

Antes disso, nos dias 18 e 19, referência para o concerto musical com jovens artistas de Liverpool, no espaço cultural CRU situado na rua Alves Roçadas. São quatro projetos e propostas culturais protagonizadas por 4 jovens músicos de Liverpool que serão acolhidos na cidade durante 10 dias, em “residência artística”, sendo que nos dias 18 (22h00) e 19 (23h00) estes músicos vão realizar concertos abertos ao público no CRU.

Ao longo do dia 19, vai decorrer o Welcome Day Jovens Internacionais, onde através de um conjunto de visitas ao território e aos equipamentos culturais, desportivos e de lazer, bem como através de atividades de animação, pretende-se fazer o acolhimento aos Estudantes Estrangeiros que se encontram a realizar o seu percurso académico nas Universidades e Escolas Profissionais no concelho.

Destaque ainda para a iniciativa “Dias à Mesa”, que vai realizar-se em vários restaurantes do concelho entre 17 e 20 de outubro, com uma ementa dedicada à cozinha internacional.

Um jogo de futebol entre a Academia do Famalicão FC e cidadãos famalicenses e imigrantes será mais um momento de convívio a animar o evento. A exposição de design têxtil e moda com a apresentação de projetos às empresas e o workshop “Riba de Ave Challenge” completam a programação.

Refira-se que Vila Nova de Famalicão mantém atualmente relações económicas, culturais, ambientais e sociais com mais de 80 cidades de 30 países dos quatro continentes, seja através de parcerias, geminações, projetos internacionais, etc.

Em Vila Nova de Famalicão, a imigração faz-se representar essencialmente através de cidadãos do Brasil (38 %), Ucrânia (20,1%) e China (7,8 %).

If you're passed over again and again for promotions, it might be time to start learning new skills in order to make yourself more valuable to the company. Going back to school or getting professional certifications can go a long way to help you advance with your current company or look more attractive to another company should you decide to leave.

Stop Schmoozing Co-Workers


Co-workers keep things light in the office and take a selfie.

It's great to have friends at work but your job isn't a country club aimed at enhancing your social status. Being friendly and courteous is important in the office, but being friends with everyone is not. This is not to say that you shouldn't attend social events or engage in some water cooler talk from time to time, but remember that your peers may one day be your subordinates.

This often leads to workplace hostility. Sometimes, it's hard to remember that you have friends outside of work and that remaining friendly, but not too friendly, is the best course of action.

Set Personal Goals


Confident young professional brainstorms some professional goals.

When it comes time for a promotion or a raise, you're ultimately going to be judged on what you do to provide additional value to the company.

Corporate goals are great, but setting personal goals to push the envelope a bit further is great for overall career growth and gives you great talking points when you're met with a review for a raise or promotion.

Build A Network


Networking is no longer an option, it's the norm. Attending these events puts you in contact with people that not only could provide opportunities later, but could also help you at your current job. Need a new HR person? You probably know someone. The IT department is looking for a new lead—great, you can call the guy you met at happy hour.

These contacts allow you to not only be on the lookout for future opportunities, but to also be the person in your current position who has the contacts they need to get things done.

Be The Solution


Confident young professional is optimistic about her career growth prospects.


If there's one thing that bosses hate, it's the person that brings problems to them to solve. Problems happen, and sometimes you don't have any other choice but to bring it to your boss, but you'll be looked at in a far more favorable light if you bring solutions when you present the problems. "This is a potential problem, but I've done some research and it appears that this would fix it"—sounds a lot better to your management team than just being the guy who is constantly complaining.


If these tips don't help and you can't seem to get ahead no matter what you try, it might be time to look for new opportunities. There's no shame in trying something and then moving on to something else when it doesn't work. No matter what position you're in, there are always ways to keep moving up the corporate latter, you just can't give up and must always remember to move forward.

USU's Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art Receives Award for Excellence

 Cache   

Utah State University’s Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art (NEHMA) received the Award for Excellence for its Collecting on the Edge exhibit from the Utah Museums Association (UMA). Each year, UMA presents awards to honor individuals or organizations who have made significant contributions to Utah museums. 

“We are honored to have received this award because it demonstrates that UMA recognizes the hard work and effort that our small staff at NEHMA put into this exhibition and publication,” said Katie Lee-Koven, executive director and chief curator. “I’ve said this many times, but who hires over 80 writers to contribute to a book and exhibition featuring 172 artists? Well, we did for this book and incorporated them into the exhibition because it was the right thing to do as an academic museum – to have the scholars and authorities share their insights about these artists.” 

Collecting on the Edge, comprising a two-part exhibition and a catalogue of the same name, is the result of a tremendous effort to document the unique collection of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. The modern and contemporary art of the American West has been largely written out of the mainstream narrative of art history or viewed through limiting perspectives.

Collecting on the Edge, featuring work by 172 artists from the NEHMA collection, told a new story, capturing the vibrant history of Western American modern art. Texts by 81 critics, art historians, artists, curators and collectors accompanied each artwork, providing unique insights into the works and their creators. 

With fewer than 10 full-time staff members, NEHMA’s team worked hard to bring the two-part exhibition and catalogue together. On view from September 15, 2018 through July 31, 2019, the exhibition was featured in the New York Times Art Fall Preview. Its ambitious scope included three installations and more than 80 artworks, spanning nearly 100 years of modern art history. 

Beyond the exhibition itself, the Collecting on the Edge catalogue documented the little-known story of modern art in Western America, featuring material unavailable online or through any other publication. Hikmet Sidney Loe of 15 Bytes writes, "... [Collecting on the Edge] manages to say to both Utahns and the broader population interested in art: 'look at the incredible range and diversity of art, medium, and genres found in the art of the American West.'”

NEHMA is dedicated to collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary visual art to promote dialogue about ideas fundamental to contemporary society. The museum provides meaningful engagement with art from the 20th and 21st centuries to support the educational mission of Utah State University, in Logan, Utah. NEHMA offers complementary public programs such as lectures, panels, tours, concerts and symposia to serve the university and regional community. Admission is free and open to the public. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays until 7 p.m. and by appointment.

UMA members nominated themselves and their peers for four awards this year: the Phil Notarianni Distinguished Service Award for exceptional dedication to Utah Museums; the Bessie Jones Volunteer Award for dedicated volunteer service in Utah museums; the Award for Excellence given to an individual, team or organization that has shown superior achievement; and the Rising  Professional Award given to a rising, current museum professional whose work to date demonstrates a commitment to excellence.

The Utah Museums Association is committed to building the capacity of all Utah museums to serve their communities. Founded in 1972, UMA is a 501(c)(3) professional membership organization for museum staff and volunteers. The association serves museums of all sizes and disciplines throughout Utah. The mission of the Utah Museums Association is to provide professional development and networking opportunities to build the capacity of Utah’s museums, connect museums to professional resources and best practices and serve as an advocate for Utah museums.
